Here you go: www.disc-italia.com/CeramicBrakePads.aspx I located the website but at work so no time to research further
The standard pads that come on the car are ceramic (Akebono).Just my $0.02, ceramic pads on a car that wont see north of 160mph is a complete waste of your money, and I'm here to explain why.
Ceramic pads have less bite/braking power as non ceramic, which means that you will actually lose braking power compared to a decent quality non ceramic. The main function of ceramic pads is that they manage heat MUCH better than non-ceramic, which is why you see them on all the crazy top of the line sports cars, because when you're braking from high speeds you need brakes that wont fade.
Now, as for what pads you should buy, I HIGHLY recommend Hawk HP or HP Plus pads if you really use your brakes.
Yes, but you should look into larger rotors to help dissipate the heat off a larger surface area. Also look into a different brand of rotors than stock AC Delco ones - they're junk.I don't mean to thread jack, but would the ceramic pads help from warping the rotors or build up on the rotors? I have Hawk HPS pads on my Wife's Cruze, and they weren't any better than the stock ones. Her brakes are shaking again. She drives over two mountains every day that require ALOT of braking because there long slopes, and her car doesn't hold itself back at all.

Not improperly bedded, but have baked onto the surface of the rotor from stopping hard and leaving the pads in contact with the surface of the rotor.Warped rotors are a myth. Plain and simple.
It's just pads that where not properly bedded.

ZZP makes a bolt on 12" brake kit. Utilizes 12" rotors and 2 piston calipers.
replacement rotors would need to be redrilled for the cruze bolt pattern or purchased from ZZP.
not all the time, they were perfect for my truck hahahacross drilled. They're terrible for daily drivers.
NopeYes all the time. Unless you have a track truck.
There is nothing wrong with slotted/dimpled rotors, aside from lower pad life. In terms of braking power they work wonders by improving initial bite, however it comes as a cost of pad life as with more bite, comes more wear. This is why most people will steer (lol) away from slotted/dimpled as it means replacing pads more often for a slight increase in breaking bite/performance.What's wrong with slotted/dimpled? I've had them on my pickup, and never had a problem with them getting hot, shaking, and fading on the mountains like I have with just plain rotors.
