Alta Muffler & Brakes
I would advise that you avoid this shop for your safety inspections. I had my window tint done professionally and insisted they make sure it was legal in Utah. I got my car inspected this year (2015) at Alta Muffler & Brakes and they failed my front windows for being too dark. I didn't argue with it it because they use a VLT meter to check them. Well, after I removed the tint in the parking lot to pass the inspection, I had them check the stock OEM un-tinted front window afterwords and the reading came back as 47%. I checked with the dealer and another certified safety inspector and the windows came back as 77% & 75% respectively. I approached them about their tint meter's error (I didn't even ask for them to replace the $80 of tint that I pulled off to pass the inspection) and just asked them to check the meter so other people wouldn't go through the time and expense of replacing the tint like I will have to. The response from the guy working there was "What do you want me to do about it? I'm not going to argue with you ... have a nice day". My only point is that there are MANY cars with 100% LEGAL tint like mine was and due to the amount that Alta's VLT meter is off (about 25-30%) they would ALL fail and that's nearly a $100 PER CAR worth of tint (I am paying $70 to get mine re-tinted, plus the time to get the old glue off and the time to drop it off and pick it up from the tinting shop). If they had at least shown some effort to check their equipment I wouldn't have written this but it was clear they couldn't care less. Again, I would avoid this shop, there are many other places to get your car inspected.

I had them put an exhaust on my jeep, and they were great to work with, fast, and fairly priced. Highly recommend
Tips & Advices
Ceramic brake pads are made from dense, durable ceramic. They are favored for their relative silence while driving compared to metal or organic brake pads. They also have little wear and tear on the overall brake system and are very reliable. However, they are more expensive than metal or organic brake pads. Additionally, their performance deteriorates in extreme driving conditions.
Brake rotors typically last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles.
Brake shoes are used in drum brakes--rather than disc brakes--which is the original braking system designed for vehicles. Just as brake pads are the friction component of disc brakes, brake shoes are the friction component of drum brakes. When the brakes are applied, a wheel cylinder pushes the brake shoe against the brake drums, which spin while the vehicle is in motion, and causes the vehicle to stop.
A squeaking or squealing sound when applying newly replaced brakes is normal. It comes from the rotor vibrating against the new brake pads. It should quiet down after about 250 miles, and should be more or less silent by 750 miles, when the brake system has had some time to synchronize itself.
This depends on the car, the brake system, and the car owner's driving habits. Typically, a car's brakes should be replaced after about 50,000 miles, but some car's brakes may last anywhere from 25,000 to 70,000 miles. Car owners shouldn't wait for a magic number to replace their brakes. They should check them regularly, and pay close attention if they hear any weird noises or if the car feels shaky while braking. Brakes are a critical safety component of a car, so it's important to stay on top of brake maintenance.
