New Rotors and Pads

Replaced my original pads a year ago with NAPA cheap semi-metallic. Ever since then they have been squeaky/noisy. And a huge amount of dust. Probably should have done the rotors at than time.

Just replaced everything with advanced Auto Parts "silver". Back to stock quiet.

I have attached pics of the old gear.

Did I do something wrong? Bad match of stock rotors with the NAPA pads? Are the NAPA pads just inferior?

Could just be the pads; I've had cheap pads in the past that would make noise regardless of what I did, and that isn't just on the Jeep. I've learned to just spend a few extra bucks and get pads that are quiet to save my sanity.

Thought I answered that question in your other post. Semi Metallic pads are noisy.

I like ceramic brake pads, quiet and clean.

Those are the cheapest AA sells.I use Wagner ThermoQuiet pads on tires under 35".
