RE: Wagner Thermo-Quiet Pads
I put Mintex rear pads on my ML500. Much less dust but squeals on slow stops. The squealing reduced after a few thousand miles, but did not stop. I asked for brake paste, but I also see there are shims that can help.
I later had the dealership put MX847 Wagner pads and new OEM rotors on the front (~45k). I bought the pads at RockAuto.com. The dealer did the install and added the rotors and sensors.
So far front brake dust is good, brake feel and stopping are normal. Even the squealing is reduced a little, perhaps the rear brakes were doing some more of the work before.
I like the Wagner pads enough that I shall use them on my ML320 next time around.
Let us know your results.
