Mintex 1144's

Hi all,

Need to replace the rear pads and after having a look around i've seen 3 contenders.

EBC Red stuff's

Mintex 1144's &

Ferodo's DS2500's

I'm looking at the mintex as I hear good things, plus they don't break the bank. I know the ferodo's are good but as a day to day pad are they worth the cash? Be nice to know if anyones had any use with the 1144's.

Used the mintex 1144 pads awhile back found them squeaky to be honest, then tried the ferodos ds2500 found them better and no squel and they long lasting depending how you drive it

Re: Mintex 1144's

Have used all three types and without a doubt the Ferodos are the best by long way
They are not that dusty
They last
They do not fade when used on track
They work from cold, so good for everyday use

You get what you pay for with these pads IMHO... Ds2500 great value... when your value is based on performance and satisfaction...

Camskill stock them

Let us know how you get on and what you decide
