Well, it's that time of year again and I need to replace my brake pads. I have completely set my mind on OEM or AEM pads.

My only real concern with the AEMs at this point, is whether or not they squeek. Well, do they?

Yes, I searched, and didn't find any definitive trend in squeeking. Thanks!

I accidentally sed yes too early.
Was tryin to say yes, get aem.

Mine actually started squeaking when they weren't warmed up for a few weeks. I thought I was gonna haf to take everything apart just to put on some stop-squeak, but it seems to have stopped.

Mine squeek. But only when they're cold.

I know...you're gonna say that I didn't do them right or didn't use the right grease. I used honda molykote grease on the shims, and followed the helms exactly.

Doesn't bother me enough to give a crap so I say get them.

mine do not squeak.

Just as a note, they are basically oem pads that are just reformulated so they don't dust quite so much. And they do dust noticibly (sp?) less. Which is pretty nice. But i'm big into autocrossing, so i could've/should've gotten some better pads. oh well, next time. (the aem ones don't perform badly.)

I have just the front ones in right now and I think they grab a bit better than the stock ones. No squeaking problems or anything.
