I bought the Nakamoto ceramic brake pad/rotor kit from 1A. The pads that came look nothing like the website pics. Why is so much pad material removed? Should I send these back?

Wow those look well used, nearly worn out. I'd send them back.

I got them from 1A auto. Basically 1 inch of pad material has been ground off from each side of the pad. I recommended these to a buddy. He already installed the front kit and is not happy with it. He says he has to push harder than with his old ceramic pads. Now I'm debating on installing them on my truck.

I can have one of my sales reps call you and pull the order to see if you were sent the correct pads. Can you PM me the part numbers on the side of the rotor boxes and pad box.

Also reply back with the full shipping name and address under which the order was placed.

I always recommend stuff before i use it also haha

LOL poor buddy was your ginneau pig LOL

ok i see the missing side material now , some of their pads have a taper or bevel or ramp if you will

but thats just gone LOL

in braking, there is no substitute for contact area I would send them back since it looks like at least 30% of the friction surface is missing on the sides compared to stock pads

We've had really good luck with these brakes, I'm running them on my vehicles and they have held up very well. If there's an issue with this particular application I'll get to the bottom of it.

unless I am missing something I just can't get past the reduced pad area?

if they work good like that imagine how much better they would stop if the full pad area was used ?
not to mention run cooler

maybe the picture is deceiving?
or the cut away vs taper makes the pad area look so much smaller?

here is an OEM style

Maybe they're made from unobtanium.
