Interesting. Mine are silent and bite hard. Can't speak for wet conditions yet though.

Did you bed the pads by chance?

From RacingBrake: Tech Tips: Installation and Break-in Procedures -

1. Make 6 to 8 brakings from approx. 30-35 mph. Do not go below 25 mph.
2. Make an additional 3 to 4 hard brakings from approx. 50-55 mph. Do not go below 40 mph.
3. Allow 10-15 minutes for the brakes to cool off. Do not apply the parking brake during this cool down period.


Brakings: These refer to an abrupt "snub and release" pedal action instead of dragging brakes to a complete stop. For track break-in, if you have to drive to another place to perform this procedure, it's OK to drive and gradually stop as you would normally on street.

Yes, I did that, and I've got hundreds of miles on them now with no decrease in terrible noise. I still have one thing left to try when I'm not too busy/lazy before just giving up
