O'Reilly's Ceramic Pads

I am looking into ceramic pads and was going to get the Hawks. I called O-Reilly's and they sell a Wagner ceramic pad for the SS that is around $100 for all 4. That's half the price of the Hawk, just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or experience with these. I don't want go cheap, my main concern is dust reduction but if I can save $100 without much difference in performance I will do it. I don't track race and am not very hard on my brakes.

I've heard, and read (Like Junkman) people rave about the Wagner Thermo quiet premium brake pads...not sure if that's the same you're referring too.

Also, read they come with a lifetime warranty - whatever that means...

I want some ceramic pads, but don't want to pay 200.00 for them.

I have 8,000 miles on my Hawk ceramics and almost zero dust; night and day difference between the ceramic and stock pads with the same braking performance.

Thanks, appreciate the info. I just might try them, and while I'm at it guess I'd better paint my calipers
