Default New brake pads for my 2.5i

I have an all stock 2008 Impreza 2.5i which is a daily driver and doesn't see any track use whatsoever, nor does it see any weekend back roads. It's strictly a daily driver.

My front pads are the original OEM and have 5mm of pad material left, so I'll be changing out the pads soon. So the question is should I just stick with the OEM pads or go with something else?

The Duralast Cmax ceramic pads have gotten good reviews, are cheaper, have a lifetime warranty, and are readily available at AutoZone. Advance Autoparts has Wagner Thermoquiet pads which also seem to have gotten good reviews.

Now with more NEW


I just picked up a set of oem akebono pads from and rear and new rotors from rockauto.com

Was around $220ish shipped. I've had a wrx that was modded and tracked and actually like the way the stock 2.5i brakes feel compared to my old wrx. Rather than take a chance, I went oem. It may be a while before I put them on though so I can't give any reviews.
