Dissapointed with Mintex pads

I bought the red box Mintex pads from pelican, with new balo rotors.

I put anti squeal on them numerous times, and after 2,000 miles of regular driving and bedding them in, they still made a significant amount of noise. A metallic noise.

So I bought textar pads, and they made no noise and worked great right away, and continue to be noise free.

$52 for Mintex vs $92 for Textars, that makes sense!

I run mintex without any anti-squeal stuff and no squeal.

just went from OEM pads to Brembo pads, feel much stronger than standard and quiet from day 1!
