Wink Brake pad recommendations (by Brands/models)

I'm considering installing some Wagner ThermoQuiets on my E90; also have to replace the rotors. Anyone have any recommendations or advice, please share...thanks!

I recommend the factory oem's.

Suggestion is that you do not change your brake pad type to ceramic; i did that before and every time i hop in my car it squeaks a lot! Especially in the rain!

Ate rear or front pads
Ate rotors
Textar pads!

DONT GET CERAMIC!

Whatever they make the new OEM pads out of, they are great - very little dust. My wheels never look dirty.

LOL.. I just put on ceramic Akebonos. No squeaks, No dust. Not as much bite as OEM but I dont need that. I enjoy not having to clean my wheels every two days. Its been 7 since I last washed and wheels still look very clean.

OEM Rotors!

I did exactly the same and am happy with the results. No squeeks. My fronts are clean and the rears with OEMs are always dirty. I was tempted to get new OEMs but was afraid of getting the old dusty version.

I went with Zimmerman coated rotors and EBC Redstuff all around. No noise, great braking, no fade and very very low dust. There are a lot of great choices right now which is great.
