I had Rapco pads on Cleveland wheels. The issue I encountered several times was brake fading. I don't know the root cause of the fading.

The Matco brakes have twice the pad surface area. Actually, the pads are about the same size, there are two sets on each wheel. I don't know who makes the pads for Matco.
