O’Reilly Launches BrakeBest® Select Pro Pads

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. (Nasdaq: ORLY) unveiled the BrakeBest® Select Pro, marking a significant leap in brake pad innovation tailored for newer model domestic vehicles.

These cutting-edge brake pads, developed in consultation with professional technicians, promise a host of benefits including a noise-free halt, simplified break-in, and comprehensive protection against corrosion.

“BrakeBest® Select Pro pads and rotors are the best aftermarket original equipment replacements I have ever pulled out of a box,” said Jared Pink, star of the YouTube channel @thequestionablegarage, who has seen quite a few brakes during his 25 years of dealership and independent shop experience. “The coating made pad break-in an absolute breeze, and the initial drive feeling has been fantastic.”

The standout feature of these brake pads is their signature blue break-in coating, which not only accelerates the break-in process but also shields against future pulsation or vibration issues. Additionally, the pads are equipped with five layers of noise-canceling shims, guaranteeing hushed, secure stops.

The rotors, boasting precision machining and enhanced balance, adhere to stricter tolerances compared to competitors. Their extended performance lifespan is attributed to a corrosion-resistant coating that envelops the entire rotor surface.

David Wilbanks, O’Reilly’s Senior Vice President of Merchandise, emphasized the meticulous design standards upheld in the creation of these components, “Our BrakeBest Select Pro lineup is carefully designed to meet the highest standards. We worked closely with our world-class, ISO-certified factory partners to craft and deliver a solution that professional technicians can trust for daily use on domestic vehicles.”

Consumers can find BrakeBest® Select Pro pads and rotors both online and in O’Reilly Auto Parts stores nationwide, including Puerto Rico. For those seeking superior braking performance, this latest offering from O’Reilly Automotive is poised to be a game-changer.
