    duralast brakes?

    i just did my brakes (duralast) and after 10 min or so i can smell burning rubber. so i pull over and check i find that my wheels are alittle hot and can smell the rubber coming from some of them(wierd thing is that different days different wheel get hot and smells) ive taken the brakes out and checked but the brakes seem to be fine,the caliper arent seized or look scorched or anything the little brake clamp type brackets arent hitting i have no idea of what the problem is

    Found this while searching. Might help, might not.


    Q. What is the recommended procedure to properly break in a new set of pads?


    A. A series of controlled moderate speed stops (15-20 Stops from 30-mph w/30 sec cool down) is required to properly "burnish" or break-in a new set of pads. During this initial stopping period, the process of lining transfer from the disc pads to the rotor surface helps condition the rotor surface to properly seat the brake pads. All pads are cured and all pads need to be burnished.

    New brakes will stink for a few days after install. Like mentioned above, give it a week and see. As long as the brakes are not dragging you should be fine.

    go to oreillys and get the brake best select. They are the mid range ones. they are basically house brand thermo-quiets. Ive never had a problem out of any of the sets iv installed or sold.
