ceramic brakes are not for trucks that work or pull a load, heat tends to make them fade faster than a semi-metallic, I use wagner severe duty pads on my F-350. just my preference but they work well, any good name brand should be fine

I have never been a fan of Cermic Pads. I always had good results with semi-metallic

I thought it was the other way around for ceramic pads. That for normal driving they sucked really bad for braking and when they got nice and hot they grabbed?

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

That is my impression as well. They don't work well when cold but once you get them warm they work great and generally don't fade. Also little to no brake dust on your rims.

2008 (Job 1) F250 King ranch 4x4, snow plow prep package with 2.5 level. Black Maxx, B&W Diehard platinums. Dieselsite coolant and transmission filters, NCU Motorsports/amsoil oil bypass kit. Turbo blankets, 5.5 PMF traction
Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

I love ceramic. Once you get it hot they are money. They don't like light braking though. I have no idea what is on mine they are factory and they bite good and hard when needed.
