I've heard the new OEM pad formulation doesn't dust hardly at all, and has the same feel as the old. I have the old - can't drive 100 feet without some dust on the wheels.
I've heard rumors about these new pads and every time I heard people complain about dusting I thought to myself I must have the new pads.

My SA knows nothing about the "new" pads. I think he needs to do more research on this new pad with a different composition because (and I know I am preaching to hte choir here) but these old pads are TERRIBLE.

If anyone has more specific information related to the newer composition pads please share and I will pass it along to my SA with the hopes of getting the right pads.
