Why We Like It – Centric Premium Brake

The Centric Premium Brake offers smooth and strong braking power for one or up to all wheels on your car. The Center Split Core Castings aids in heat transfer to prevent warping and extends the life of your brake system. And if you only need to get one break, fear not, because the Centric Premium Brakes are sold individually.

Pros
  • Quiet and smooth Double Disc Brake
  • Can be used in all types of terrain
  • Great if you need to replace just one brake
Cons
  • Moderate brake dust
  • Small vehicle compatibility
  • A whole-car replacement can get expensive

Performance

The Centric Premium Brake has been manufactured to meet original equipment specifications which help to give the ceramic brake pads smooth and strong braking power. The included double disc ground makes braking high performance and quiet too. Some models, namely the posi quiet 105.0929 Premium Rotors, are designed specifically for quietness. Unfortunately, even though there is good braking performance, there is still moderate amounts of brake dust. Consider the Wagner QuickStop ZD866 Installation Hardware as a similarly priced alternative.

Design

The Centric Premium Brake is designed with center split core castings which aids in heat transfer. The black e-coating helps with long-lasting corrosion protection, and the double disc provides near perfect disc thickness. The rotor is durable and weather-resistant, and thanks to this can be used in all types of terrain without having to worry about any undue damage. Unfortunately, it’s vehicle selection is rather low. Check out the K1043 Evolution Drilled Slotted Ceramic to remedy this, especially if you own a Honda or Acura.

Value

Centric Parts are available on Amazon at fairly reasonable prices, about $35.00 per part (the part number is 120.40036). But it can add-up if you’re looking to replace all four brakes on your car. But perhaps you can go to their ‘contact us’ page to see if there’s something they can do for you. Or you can check out the Bosch BC905 QuietCast Premium Ceramic if your car is compatible. Customer reviews for the Centric Premium Brake are also good, rating 4/5 stars based on 123 reviews.

Centric Premium Brake Wrap Up

The Centric Premium Brake can act as a single or whole car brake replacement system owing to the fact that it can be sold individually. It’s a good brake, and you’ll be happy with it if your car or truck is one of the few that is compatible with it. But be aware that it will cause moderate amounts of brake dust compared to other brake pad systems.
