PBR make alot of brake components including calipers, mastercyinders etc and generally have a pretty good reputation down here. Not sure how good the pads are as i have never used them, id be looking to check if they have any anti-squeel compound built into them as using asbestos is banned in Aus. Asbestos was what stopped the brakes from squeeling under application.

Good luck.

Generally PBR is medium to good stuff, like all manufacturers they usually offer different grades at different prices. You know the kind of thing, Economy, gold and boy racer grades. The cheaper they are the longer they last cos thay got nuthin in them that will stop you and are as hard as a very hard thing.The expensive ones will give you seat belt burns and last as long as a cold beer on a warm day. The cheap ones are the noisy ones. Depends what you want out of them I guess. Me? I like to stop before I hit things. You look pretty silly raving on about your cheap brake pads with your bumper rammed three feet inside the back of a 4x4.
