Question Anyone use Wagner ThermoQuiet Brake Pads?????

My CC needed ft Pads..
Bought Wagner ThermoQuiets..
Put them on with out cutting the rotors..
Dosent seem to want to stop...
Actually rolled thru a light almost with my enclosed trailer on..
Front brakes were porring Smoke off after that..

Pulled the pads and they look smoth as Glass..

Pulled the rotors and had them cleaned up, touched the pads up on a belt sander and put back together..

Still seem like it dosnt want to stop..

Def. cant do a panic stop...


So....

I've had them on mine for about a year, no issues. What did the old pads look like, any uneven wear?

Did you have problems stopping before you put those pads on?
Are the new pads ceramic or semi metalic?

hhmm, sounds to me like it's the new pads then, which is unusual. The rotors didn't happen to have a film of grease or some other kind of residue on them did they? I know you said you cleaned them up....
If the rotors are clean then I would say its in the pads...not really sure what would cause them to become so smooth other than poor quality. Take em' back and try a different set is what I would do.

Sounds like the rotors were glazed, now the pads are glazed. So, you corrected that issue. I would go attempt to bed them in without a trailer. Also make sure the rear shoes are adjusted correctly.

I did check the rear and adjusted them a little..
Still just seems like it takes a while to stop.

If I push on the pedal as hard as passiable it seems just to keep going..
Pedel isnt hard,,
Just dosent seem right,,

I'm not a fan of new pads on old rotors with either cutting them or atleast taking some sand paper to them to get the glaze off....( not the correct way, but it works)

Your new pads are shot!!!
