Pyramid brakes pads
« on: April 25, 2018, 09:25:53 AM »
Any one tried brake pads called pyramid parts brake pads. Full front /rear set for 30 on Amazon.  Big price difference

Never tried them myself, pity the three reviews don't mention performance.

You get what you pay for.  Seems very cheap for a full set.  I previously had a rear set I thought was good value but only lasted about 1,000 km.

Expensive not always the best. But yes they are cheap but if anyone  had good experience with them then yes I would buy them.

If someone said they were just fine re performance and that they lasted a decent time I'd consider them.

But, for a few quid extra I always fit EBC. Tried, trusted and they stop me even when quite hot. Why risk it?

Back when ......
I had to do some urgent configuration on a bunch of sites in the Western Isles and we had very little time before 'go live'
So the boss had to sign off on a private helicopter in order to meet our deadline.

To this day, I remember the call from our travel arranger (those were the days) "I've managed to get the cheapest helicopter in Scotland"  :114:

Ye just ordered good set brakes.
I cleaned etc front brakes as slight binding at front brakes.
But still the same.  Any ideas what else causes pistons not to go back enough stop brake pads rubbing.

Are they binding? mine both front and back rub slightly and make a noise but the wheels spin freely
