I ran two sets of these. The first set's noise was okay on a old set of rotors. But the 2nd set with new rotors was terrible. I think might have to do with rotor and pad compound incompatibility or that the CC-RG had trouble operating at low temperatures. It literally sounded like metal on metal grinding at every stop. People would look at you weird and cover their ears outside. Whatever it was, it was too noisy for me. I got Project Mu HC+ pads. Those have the same high temp and bite but much more civil on the street.
