EBC Yellowstuff brake pads

just got these puppies in tonight, along with some new rotors. driving easy to bed them in. but wow so far they bite way better then my duracrap ceramics did before. can't wait to get them bedded in and see their full potential.

Never tried the yellows have run the reds and greens on my otr, reds ate up my rotors but the stopping was amazing. Really like the greens not much dust wear great and rotors don't seem to be wearing anywhere near as fast. Anyone know how the yellows compare to the reds or greens?

Yellows are pretty dust heavy pads, and they don't work the best when cold but I think they're not too bad. I've had them on my truck for about a year and a half now? I've had them literally smoking a couple times since like I said they're not the best when cold like most more aggressive pad compounds

Forget driving easy to bed the pads in, go to an industrial park or something and do 5 to 8 passes between 30 to 50 mph and use heavy braking to slow the vehicle but it is important you do not stop the vehicle. During this process I usually wait a couple minutes between passes so things don't heat up too quickly. Just don't come to a complete stop until you're done the process.

mine made noise for about 200 kms. it went away but still squeaks alittle once in a while. they do stop but what i noticed more was the elimination of brake fade but i also got slotted rotors from EBC.

also in another thread, there was mention of a paper backing with proper break in procedures. mine never came with that paper. could you post a pic or two?

i would like to know what you guys call little dust? my rims are darker then with the stock oems. i hope it goes away or gets less noticeable.

different colours are for different applications. green and yellow is for our trucks and small SUVs. it says on the site. red is this, green is that, yellow is them. the colour is also for destinguishing materials. i forget what is what but one is hard, one is harder then one is for like racing applications.

hummm, maybe when i do my spindle lift i will ditch my duracrap pads and rotors and put some EBC rotors and green stuff pads on. they sound nice. not literally. just figuratively.


i beat they make rotors and pads for expo rear disks to. cool. when i swap out my drums I will go all EBC.

Keep us up to date on how they perform. I was thinking of going with EBC products on the MKX soon and would like to know how they do.
