Low Dust Brake Pads

I just want to hear what low dust or dustless brake pads people have tried and what they did or didn\'t like.

Please chime in

Akebono on Tirerack is working as advertised. No dust.

I like my AKebonos in terms of dust. My wheels stay looking fresh much longer then my paint does. So I just only clean the wheels when I'm washing the car.

Ditto. The car gets dirtier than the wheels.

What about stopping? Do these low/no dust pads stop as well? How long do they last? Less dust would be awesome.

You give up some stopping power with low dust pads. I recently swapped out my low dust pads with Hawk HPS. The HPS definitely stops better (closer to stock), but there is a bit more dust (still a lot less than stock though).

I was using Disc Italia Titanium Kevlar pads from brakeworld. They were okay, but not as grabby as the stock pads. Brake dust was non existent. At first I was worried because of the lack of bite, but they got better after a few hundred miles. less initial bite than the OEMs, and required a bit more pedal pressure. I'd say mid-range pressure/grip was nearly the same as the OEMs, but tapered off again at very high pedal pressure. It was a more linear pedal feel than stocks.

I had these pads for nearly a year and they are hardly worn at all and the rotors look nearly brand new. The low dust on these were also great. less dust after 1 month of driving on these than 1 week (or less) of driving with stock pads. And they were silent too.

We've had Cool Carbon brake pads installed on a few of our shop cars, and they dust less than OEM pads, while still improving the pedal feel. We've got these pads in stock if you need a set

Cheaper than all of the above, keeping oem brakes($0 at dealer). My wheels stay clean longer than the paint.

When you wash the car you have to treat again.
