PBR Deluxe brake pads?

I accidentaly clicked on the PBR option for rear brake pads on FastLane, i wanted Textar, and instead i clicked on the PBR Deluxe button. Since the PBRs are organic asbestos pads, will they work just fine for the rear brakes? Or should i return them for some Textars, as soon as i get the PBRs?

I use PBR's on my BMW's and I like them The dust is considerably less than the Texstars and they are quiet too.

I Recommend PBR deluxe pads

I installed PBR deluxe pads on the 190E five weeks ago.

In three weeks there was less brake dust than after two days with whatever was in there before, I am guessing OEM pads.

They don't squeak, have a very smooth braking effect and work really well.

I recommend PBR deluxe pads.

Any problem using PBR's in front and Textar's in back? I've got the Textar's for the rear but haven't ordered the front pads yet.

It's a 300E.

Bud,
The only problem is your front wheels will be cleaner than the rear.
