Default bendix ultra premium

What are the bendix ultra premium are the just bendix CT general and just packaged for super cheap as ultra premium ?

I have used bendix advance in my VY SS and they are a good pad that i would use again but i don't think CT general will cut it for me as if anything i would like to go to a higher performance pad than advance if anything.

I think the heavy duty are just for around town driving not fast high speed stuff i may do at times.

I have use ultimate 8 times but i don't drive as fast and hard as i use to, so i think they are a bit of an over the top, never worried about the brake rotor wear it was never been a problem for me at all as they are not that expensive to replace but i have had rotors wear very badly with low perfomance pads as they gouge out the rotors when they get to hot.

It looks like i will have to go for the ultimate on the front and just put up with the less perfomance when they are cold.

Yes, just to suck some people into thinking they have got a bargain set of Ultimates, which are a good but very dirty pad.
The UP equate to general I guess but when they have those specials at 2 for $75 I buy a few sets for the cabs.

I bought a set of the Bendix UP as an urgent one and yes in the pack I later found a label saying they were General CT. Good old parallel importing and Supercheap marketing....

I swapped out from Ultimates - let's just say scary is the word. But the snowflakes don't need a wash every second day now.
