Duralast Brakes⁠—OE or better quality, coverage, and profitability.


Duralast Brakes are known for being the most OE-equivalent program in the industry, from factory matched designs to innovative formulations, Duralast are the brakes more technicians choose*.

The Duralast Brake Pad Line offer three options that are designed for OE or better quality: the Duralast Brake Pad (OES-matched quality), the Duralast Gold Brake Pad (OEM-matched quality), and the Duralast Elite Brake Pad (Better than OEM). The Duralast Brake Pad is designed to match the quality from what the dealer sells over the counter, making sure they specifically meet or exceed OES fit, form, and function. They come in semi-metallic or ceramic friction formulations, with a powder coated backing plate and two-layer shim for noise and vibration control.

The Duralast Gold Pad matches the OEM pad, what comes from the factory, offering application specific design, formulation to performance.

The Duralast Elite Brake Pads are designed to outperform the OEM. They are next generation ceramic, with ultra-quiet, low-dust, premium braking performance. Elite Pads are engineered with an application-specific advanced hexagonal transfer layer that delivers maximum noise control while boosting stopping power and lasting longer.
