Mintex. They're fine, but did you apply anti-squeal precautions to the back plate?

These can take the form of aluminium aheet qith copper grease on each side, soft gasket type material, or if these aren't available for your vehicle, the rubbery stuff you smear on and leave to dry, you can get it in small sachets for about £1.29 and iys usually bright orange.
I think you can buy it from Halfords superstores these days hidden away somewhere, but most Motot factors will have it.

Copper grease should be appled if nothing more sphistigated is used in it's place, but it doesen't always work, or stops working after so long.
I'd get some of the "Brake Squeal Stop" goop if I was you, it always works, and is used by the manufacturers a lot.
