Pep Express Brake Brands

Pep Express offers a wide range of brake pads, rotors and brake parts – everything from basic value options to upgraded ceramic and high performance brakes.

Wagner® OEX

Make stopping sooner a priority. Premium Wagner OE X brake pads can stop pickups, SUVs and CUVs up to 50 feet sooner than competitive brands based on third-party on-vehicle testing*. Wagner put science behind the stopping power of Wagner OEX with innovative engineering and design. Wagner OEX is made in the USA of US and imported parts.

*Results based on 60mph post-fade performance testing conducted by Link Engineering Company comparing Wagner OEX brake pads to competitors’ brake pads on the 2014 Ford F-150, 2011 Toyota RAV4, and 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Wagner TQ®

Wagner TQ® features Integrally Molded Insulator (IMI™) technology that integrates the friction material, backing plate and insulator into a single high strength component. It dissipates heat and vibration over a much larger surface area for quieter braking. Wagner ThermoQuiet CeramicNXT® brake pads set new benchmarks for ceramic brake pad performance with 15% more stopping power, 35% quieter braking and 40% better fade performance*.They feature Wagner OE21 low copper formulations.

Wagner QS™

Restore your vehicle’s out-of-the-factory braking capabilities. Wagner QS™ brake pads are designed, tested and certified to ensure a vehicle's braking system will be restored to its original equipment performance.

Ferodo

With over 100 years of experience in friction and braking, and a rich heritage in Formula racing, the Ferodo® name is synonymous with excellence and performance. Ferodo brake pads are used worldwide by a wide range of European nameplate OEMs to provide exceptional braking performance. In 2017, Ferodo is the OE brake pad of choice on eight of the 10 top selling vehicles in Europe. The same high-quality, OE-replacement Ferodo brake pads available in Europe are available in the US.  Ferodo aftermarket brake pads with vehicle-specific friction material formulations deliver ultimate control with minimal stopping distances, are European R90 compliant, and go through extensive research, laboratory and road testing to ensure the pads perform within a narrow range of the original-equipment product performance.

Wagner Premium E-Shield® Rotors

Wagner premium E-Shield® brake rotors are engineered for maximum performance and are an ideal pairing for Wagner premium brake pads. E-Shield rotors use a durable, protective electro-coating process on all non-braking surfaces which prevents corrosion. Their turned smooth finish aids in proper seating of the friction and less “break –in” time. They have unique, application-specific vane designs for greater cooling capabilities and more effective stopping power, and they are manufactured to tight tolerance specifications. To top it off, Wagner E-Shield rotors are enclosed in a Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) bag, reducing prep and installation time.

ProStop

ProStop provides a safe and dependable brake pad at a moderate price. ProStop brake pads are shimmed for noise dampening and meet OE requirements, offering a safe yet economical choice.

EBC

EBC is a preferred choice for high-HP imports, muscle cars and prestige European cars. High-quality EBC brakes reduce dust and promise longer pad life. EBC’s special “Brake-in” surface coating conditions the rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in.

Akebono

Made in the USA, Akebono ceramic brake pads utilize the aftermarket’s only OE-validated, application-specific ceramic friction formulations. These high-quality pads restore or, in most cases, improve braking performance while cutting down on brake dust, noise, vibration and harshness.

Dorman

Dorman offers a variety of re-engineered OE brake replacement solutions that, in some cases, improves upon the original design.
