Cool Brake Pads

I am not sure where to post this so if this is the wrong spot I appologize. I am wondering if my 2004 P/T Touring Edition 2.4 Turbo can use ceramic Brake pads or will it burn up the rotors. I would really like to use cause my front rims look terrible covered in black brake dust. Thanks

You can use ceramic. Just be sure you get the ones for the Turbo model becasue you have bigger rotors

I bought a set of ceramics and drilled/slotted rotors as a package deal. Everything was USA made, fit perfect and works like a champ. Around 130 on ebay.

Front pads are the same fro N/A & turbo - only the shims are different, and they always seem to give you the N/A shims - I just clean & re-use the original shims since they're stainless steel.

I found good prices at Tire Rack.
