How much more do premium grade brake linings cost over standard linings?

Because of the special ingredients and extra manufacturing steps that go into premium grade linings, they cost more than standard linings. The cost isn’t that much higher and, when you consider that the cost of the linings is actually only a small percentage of a complete brake job, price should not be a major issue when it comes to recommending the benefits of premium pads. After all, you usually get what you pay for and when a customer realizes premium pads will feel better, brake better and run quiet-er than a cheap set of pads, he or she will usually go for the more expensive linings.
