Best Low Dust/Noise Brake Pads

Best Low Dust/Noise Brake Pads? I have an 1LE with Brembos and looking to cut down on the ridiculous brake dust and occasional squeal of the stock pads.

May be another reason you have squeal. I've run OEM pads on the street and track, and have never had squeal. Also, as mentioned, if you go with lower dusting, you'll most likely be giving up on performance. Pads can't perform as well if they don't break down somewhat.

you say that until some stupid driver, not paying attention pulls out in front of you, while your are doing 60 mph. This heavy pig needs some pads to stop it!

I have always had Hawk Ceramic pads and it really cut the dust from the OEM pads and never had issues with noise.

PowerStop Z26. Have them on my C7 corvette and they perform every bit as good as stock Brembos, if not better....just ordered a set for my Canaro too. They don't cost much, and eliminate 95% of the dust. Don't listen to the naysayers, it'll be one of the best purchases you ever make for your car.

Ran out to Summit Racing and picked these up, look like nice pads. Going to pop off the rotors and get them a fresh cut and pop these on. Looking forward to not having to clean these wheels so much, hope they dont squeal.

Did you cut your rotors with the install?

I am not sure if he did but i think it would be a good idea for a new set of pads to have a fresh and flat surface to lay on.
