For taking your vehicle to a cut-rate brake shop.

OEM in blue on the right. WTF in brown on the left.

Not only did your aftermarket pads have half the pad surface area, but the shop also tossed the shims (which were more costly than the pads themselves?!)

Pedal feel: instantly improved. Stopping distance: instantly shortened. Pedal pulsation: instantly gone. Awful squealing at all speeds, even though the pads were at 80%: instantly gone.

+1 for OEM. Some things just shouldn’t be skimped on.
