Posted 4 years ago blandMember Controversially I have ordered organic this time in the hope of less heat buildup and less squeal. If its forecast wet then sintered will be better though so maybe a mix. Another tip is to swap them each day and keep the baked ones for the UK winter as they will last a lot longer. Lot lot longer! Yes it’s a faff but worth it Posted 4 years ago NorthwindSubscriber I’d never heard that… Makes sense though. My pro tip- make sure the spare pads you take are for the brakes you have fitted, not the ones you replaced a year ago.
