Default Question on brake pads??

I want to change the brake pads on the GT, cobra and pickup. They make stupid brake dust so I want to install a quality pad that will create less dust.

What are good brands, Hawk, EBC??? What else is there?

The Cobra will need the rear only since I'm doing a big brake setup in the front. I think I'm going with Wilwood for the front and a set of there rotors for the rear.

Moved it for ya...

I have read that some ceramic pads will actually burn the finish on wheels. I would rather have brake dust than peeling chrome. Just food for thought.

Tom
Do ceramics really cut the brake dust with no ill effects on stopping power and noise? What brand and compound are you using?

I don't remember what brand they are but I have never noticed any difference in stopping power. If I remember rite Cobra Pete ran ceramics on his zO6

I had ceramics from StopTech. (still do in a box now) They kept the rims nice and clean but were not good at all on the track. Any great brake pad will be dirty. But for 99% of the time you are better off with ceramic.
