Default Friction Master Ceramic Brake Pads

In a ad in the local paper, Advance Auto are offering this brand of pads. Starting at 36.88, have no idea if that is the price for the PT's. Has anyone used these or heard of this brand, if so, any pros or cons?

For the price, I would bet they are actually a ceramic blend.
At about 8-12% ceramic, you can advertise as ceramic pads.

The CMX-7716 NAPA ceramic pads I install for my customers are 100% ceramic.
The SS-7716-X pad is the ceramic blend from NAPA.
Their Safety Stop (SS) pads are available in a ceramic blend for many applications, but I would never use them.
CMX-7716 = $87.88
SS-7716-X = about $35

I would insist on the MSDS safety sheet for the cheapo ceramic pads to determine the composition.
