Backing plate is solid. Identical to the original in all ways but size. Quality and Fit are excellent. No issues at all. Great product.
Merchant Response:You'll need the FLEX CHANGEABLE BACKING PLATE SYSTEM to use with the 5 inch Hybrid Pads.
No overheat issues
Allows use of smaller pads (great for small cars and tight spaces)
Cons:Does not fit correctly with 5" hybrid power finish pads from Lake Country. Will still work but backing plate sticks out over the pad material.
