Test data showing the superior performance of the X-type brake pads compared to the OEM brake pads

Brake pad performance comparison test of the X-type and OEM using a heavier vehicle with upgraded oversized wheels.

Test Vehicle :
DIXCEL tuned Toyota Alphard
Test Method :
Replicating ordinary street-use, full braking from 60km/h. Replicating highway-use, braking from 80km/h. Repeating each condition 5 times for the 3 different patterns listed below. Taking an average of the stopping distances not using the maximum and minimum values for each pattern.
Pattern 1 :
OEM wheels (16 inch) and OEM brake pads
Pattern 2 :
Aftermarket wheels (22 inch) and OEM brake pads
Pattern 3 :
Aftermarket wheels (22 inch) and DIXCEL X-type brake pads
■ Comparison of braking distances
Upgrading your wheels to oversized aftermarket wheels without upgrading your brake pads can be dangerous! To avoid a decrease in brake performance, DIXCEL recommends upgrading your brake pads when upgrading to oversized aftermarket wheels!
