It's time to change the pads in my Juicy 5s. Can anyone recommend a set of pads to replace my worn out stock items?
I've looked at EBC, Clark, Superstar etc etc. Superstar look great value but are they any good?
Cheers guys!
Geoff. :D

    i really like superstar pads but ive been lucky with good batches. there was a time when loads of them failed but i think thats an old problem.

    i used to swear by ebc gold pads due to their power (especially as im over 19 stone!) but in comparison to the superstar ones, im not sure they are worth the extra money.

    swissstop pads are exceptional, very powerfull and long lasting but i dont think there are any more expensive pads out there.
  • Thanks for all your input guys, Looks like Superstar is the way forward!
