So I had new brakes put on my front when I got my tires. I did new rotors and pads. They started squealing about a week ago but only when things have warmed up. I don't get it
 






use a different pad. at my shop we use raybestos brakes. the same happened to me. so i switched to a brand called centric. i dont think these are available at part stores though. havent had that problem for over a year now. napa is selling some nice ones now called "adaptive" give those a shot.
 






I've had Raybestos on the rear of my for 6 months now. I have no squealing.

OP,
The question is, did they use shims and/or brake quiet?

I'm not sure. I'm taking back in the next week or so when I have some spare time. I only have a problem with the front passenger side, so I assume it just needs a shim or some little nit picky thing and not different pads since the driver side is fine
