    Quality and innovation define Centric Parts. Centric’s commitment to excellence begins with its research and development team: Experts at sourcing parts, testing product and recognizing and solving the challenges technicians and distributors experience. Centric’s industry-leading, in-house research and engineering departments analyze and design each part to ensure proper fitment and safe performance for every application, import and domestic.

    Component and kit designs are produced in Solidworks, and finite element analysis (FEA) studies are completed in FEA Solidworks Simulation.

    With four in-house brake dynos, Centric has the ability to test each brake component in the most demanding conditions and react to real time data better than any other parts manufacturer in the industry. Each brake system is put through rigorous stopping simulations and all data recorded and analyzed to ensure optimum performance and durability.

    Centric Parts takes extraordinary pride in its friendly customer service team and knowledgeable technical department. Whether you are placing an order or looking for installation answers, Centric is always there to help.

    Centric’s award winning catalog system has set the highest standards in the automotive aftermarket and includes application information for passenger vehicles and medium duty trucks. Centric’s specialty catalogs include Medium Duty, Mexico and High Performance. The Centric online catalog provides instant application information, technical specifications and parts identification images with the click of a mouse.

    The Friction Materials Standards Institute (FMSI) honors companies every year for identifying and cataloging new brake pad friction applications. Centric Parts has won the award as the number one contributor every year it has been presented.

  • All Centric brake pads and shoes are manufactured in compliance with federal standards regarding friction material content. All Centric brake pads and shoes meet or exceed asbestos and copper regulations.

    Hardware replacement is often overlooked during routine brake system maintenance. Worn or missing hardware can lead to premature pad wear, excessive pad vibration and noise. Centric includes application specific hardware with all Posi Quiet and Fleet Performance brake pad sets* to ensure correct pad fitment, improved performance and extended service life of the pad.

    Choosing the correct friction formula for your particular application is essential for optimizing brake system performance and reliability. Centric’s engineering team carefully selects and tests each friction compound to ensure proper stopping performance throughout the lifetime of the brake pad. With four in-house brake dynos, a brake friction materials lab and real-time vehicle testing Centric is the undisputed leader in aftermarket brake friction.

    * Where applicable

    Positive molding is a manufacturing process utilized by Original Equipment brake pad suppliers. Extreme pressure compresses the friction compound creating a more consistent material density throughout the brake pad.

    All Centric Fleet Performance and Posi Quiet brake pads are scorched to accelerate the break-in process. This O.E.M process enhances key friction performance levels. Scorching raises initial cold effectiveness, stabilizes friction levels right out of the box, and provides consistent performance across the entire operating range. During the scorching phase, each brake pad surface is super-heated to simulate the initial break-in process performed by installation technicians.

    Precision cut or shaved backing plates reduce noise associated with vibration by ensuring proper pad fit in the caliper. Correct fitment promotes even pad wear, increased service life and consistent braking power throughout the life of the brake pad.

    All Posi Quiet and Centric Fleet Performance brake pads feature mechanically attached O.E. style shims where applicable to eliminate noise associated with pad vibration. Mechanically attached shims provide superior noise abatement compared to lesser adhesive or drift-lock style shims.

  • Posi Quiet Extended Wear brake pads feature stable friction levels across a wide temperature range. Extended Wear brake pads are formulated for long pad life and reduced brake rotor wear and include all necessary hardware for complete installation.*

    Centric Fleet Performance brake pads are specifically engineered to perform in repeat high-speed, high- heat, pursuit conditions. The Fleet Performance pad can safely stop vehicles from high speeds and will continue to work at very high temperatures. Centric Fleet Performance brake pads include all necessary hardware for complete installation.*

    Centric Fleet Performance brake pads are specially formulated for use in high temperature and repeat stop situations.

    Posi Quiet Extended Wear brake pads are specifically engineered to perform on vehicles that are driven under normal highway and city operating conditions.

    Centric Heavy Duty Brake Shoes provide extended service life and include O.E. style pins and levers and are riveted to match O.E. specifications.

    * Where applicable

    Hard working vehicles require hard working components. Centric Heavy Duty brake shoes are formulated for superior stopping power and extended service life. Centric friction engineers have developed specialized friction formulas for heavy use while maintaining low noise and dust.

  • Centric Parts® Premium Black Rotors are manufactured to meet QS and ISO Quality System Standards.

    Centric Premium Brake Rotors O.E. vane design • Reliable performance through a wide range of driving conditions Symmetric Vane Castings • Increased strength and stability Mill Balancing • Reduced vibration and feedback Black E-Coat • Anti-corrosion coating protects all non-friction surfaces • Engineered to withstand 400 hours of salt water exposure without rusting

    Each Centric Performance and Premium brake rotor casting is straddle cut to ensure parallelism. Straddle cutting is the most accurate machining process available for rotor manufacturing and eliminates many inconsistencies left behind by lesser cutting processes. All Centric Performance and Premium brake rotors feature a double disc ground finish which virtually eliminates run out and disc thickness variation issues. Double disc grinding also produces a non-directional finish for better pad and rotor break-in. In addition, Centric Performance and Premium brake rotors are mill balanced to a tolerance of less than 2oz-inch. This additional machining operation reduces feedback associated with rotor vibration and provides smooth, confident application of braking force.
