Chipped Brake Pad

I picked up some open box Stoptech Sport rear brake pads for $15 on Amazon but there's a chip in one of them. Wondering if these are still safe or if I should return and get some brand new ones.

They're not some no-name $15 parts. As I said in my post, they are well known Stoptech Sport pads, previously known as Street Performance. I've used them on multiple cars and they're my favorite street pad. They were $15 because someone returned them and they were probably sitting in the warehouse for a while. Why should I spend $75 on something I can buy for $15?

Those pads look fine to me. Put them on and don't even worry about it.

Still have no clue what you're saying here. Amazon sells the exact same parts as every other retailer. They are also usually the cheapest and have the fastest shipping. Do you trust Stoptech?

Sounds like these are perfectly fine to use, thanks for the input all.
