EBC green brakes

Anyone have any problems using EBC green pads on resurfaced rotors vs using new rotors?

Greens are ok, but we have had much better luck with EBC Reds.

You can use them on good used or resurfaced rotors but they usually take longer to bed in than they do on new smooth rotors.

I'm using EBC Reds on new Stoptech drilled and slotted rotors and haven't gotten a single squeek out of them. 300 miles in so far and it gets better and better.

When I renewed my OEM brakes for the first time, the OEM rotors were already worn down beyond specifications, so I changed out the rotors and pads at the same time. I used EBC Reds, they stopped the car noticeably better than OEM brakes right away on the new rotors.
I used Duralast rotors from Autozone, because I didn't measure the thickness of the old rotors until I had the calipers off and I didn't want to wait for fancier rotors to come in the mail or drive an hour to the dealer for OEM rotors. The Duralast rotors work very well, I'm not sorry I bought them.
