I run Power Stop Pads and Rotors and it has eliminated my brake dust issues.

I use the Hawk HPS 5.0 pads. They work the best! Less dust and similar in performance to the Brembos. Installed them a year ago. They still perform as when new and I would certainly recomend these pads.

"OK", So I've ordered the Hawk Ceramic pads - they should be here next week - I'll be changing pads then and hopefully, no more dirty wheels in 20 miles of driving

No, called Hawk Customer Service and had a long talk with them - My car only has 4000 miles on it - They said I could use my original rotors just to make sure I clean the rotors good to eliminate squeaking & use the grease supplied to stop chatter feed back

I agree with HDRDTD. I have been running Hawk yellow ceramic pads for nearly 5 years and 55K miles, and agree my dust has been cut down by 85% at least too.

Ceramic pads. I changed my rear pads and replaced with ceramic pads. They now have virtulally no dust when compared to my front brakes.

Dollar for dollar, Powerstops are the best dust free pads you can buy. Everyone should have a set.

Well, 100 miles of driving & no brake dust - Brake pedal feels the same for street driving - Happy Camper

hawk yellow brake pads and ceramic coating on the wheels. Just power-wash your wheels and they are 80-90% cleaned. Cleaning wheels get so much easier with ceramic coating!!

Yes, I agree - Brake pedal feels the same to me & since I do not track the car feel I made a great choice
