My 2017 Nissan LEAF SV 30 KWh has already near 4 years old (since January 2017) I used it every day (more than 94 000 km (58 000 miles)) and original brakes has less than 30% left (my mechanic in town is worrying about it) I'm driving my LEAF mainly on highway with often emergency braking (people are driving fast in Canada). My rear brakes starts compensates for the thin front brakes.
I'm looking for durable, noise-free (silent) and less rusty brake rotors and pad kit.
My mechanic recommends ceramic brakes for less braking noise (more silent).
Did you ever tried Aftermarket performance brakes kit (rotors + pads) like the
"Power Stop Z23 Evolution Sport Performance Brake Kit - Front & Rear" available at Canadian Tires for CDN $ 425.00 ordering it in store and it arrives in 11 to 18 days ?
https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/powe ... 61955.html
Z23 Carbon-Fiber Ceramic formula for superior braking power
Dust-free braking performance
Premium rubberized shims provide virtually noise-free braking
Drilled and Slotted performance rotors for maximum cooling
Rotors (except for hub assemblies) are zinc plated for maximum protection against rust
Includes ceramic brake lubricant and premium hardware kit
It seems to be a great deal because this kit is heavy ( 28 kg = 62 lbs) and shipping rates to deliver at my house are always expensive.
I already tried these front disks and pads on a 2012 Nissan Versa to improve braking performance on emergency stops on highway and I was satisfied (they last more than 4 years on a Versa and they seems to improve braking performance on emergency stops).
I'm wondering if this kit would last more than 4 years on an electric vehicle with the extra weight of the HV battery.
I'm wondering if "Power Stop Z23 Evolution Sport Performance Brake Kit - Front & Rear" is at least equivalent of the Nissan original brakes rotors and pads.
