PBR pads will scream all the time if used only on the rear -- you need to put them on the front, too (or so I've been told) and you MUST use the antisqueal shims to eliminate the noise.

I prefer to use OEM pads. Yeah, you get more trake dust, that's a pain, but they stop wonderfully and never squeal.....
