Eicher Brake pads??

Hi All,

I'm in need of some new rear pads.

I have seen these and they seem cheap! Eicher Honda | Car Parts 4 Less UK

I assume the backs don't do too much on the daily commute, I dont track it or even thrash it very often at all so I don't need anything better that OEM.

But I know some do give more dust than others, but do these?

I have yellow stuff on at the moment (from the previous owner) and they don't dust that much.

Any advise would be great!

Thanks

Never heard of them TBH and after a 30 second Google they don't get good reviews.

Don't scrimp on brakes, it's not worth it.

Hi Revs,

I tend to follow the same rules, better safe than sorry.

However if these are as good as OEM shouldn't they be fine?

Questions is, are they as good as OEM?

Cheers!

Actually having done the google thing, it seems they are pretty dire.

For the extra £7 the Pagids seem a no brainer!

Any thoughts on the Pagid? Also does anyone know what make the Honda OEM ones are?

Ta!

I've not had Pagid's but I hear they're good as an OEM replacement.

No idea who makes them for Honda, but they're not the best either and very dusty.

I think Ferodo are a safe bet. I've had their Premier Pads (OEM equiv.) and DS2500 (fast road pads) and they were both very good.

From my experience, many aftermarket brake pads tend to squeel.

OEM is still the best.

Sintered fast road/track pads do, yes. OEM replacement pads shouldn't unless they're fitted without the anti-squeal shim and/or a bit of copper grease.

Thanks all,

As an option does anyone know the price for Honda to supply and fit rear pads?

I was going to give it a go DIY if I bought non OEM, but might work out better to just go to the dealer??

Not sure on Honda's price for fitment. Check out Cox Motor Parts, they sell genuine Honda parts, generally about 10 - 20% cheaper.
