    I'm looking for a set of brake pads that produce a low amount of dust. I find myself scrubbing the wheels weekly...

    What are your goals for the car? I am running stoptech 309 pads. Great for autox, not for track days. I killed a brand new set of pads in 1 track day. They aren't dust free, but not to bad. Any good performance pad will create dust.

    My goals were to do autocross and keep from cleaning the wheels every week. LOL

    I can suck it up and clean my wheels. It's pretty much a habit now. As for performance pads, I have my eye on the Powerstop ones from RockAuto. They are on sale decently cheap.

    Yeah, I dont autocross the car but in general they have a pretty good bite once you bed them in properly.

    Ditto on the evo ceramic pads. I had them before I did my dual piston upgrade and they were really nice, then I got them again with the upgrade. For the month I had them before my accident they were super awesome but that was also with GSX front calipers and braided lines. As far as the dust ofcourse I had to clean the wheels with fresh red calipers and after that month they still look just as clean.

    Anything for hotter temps and no dust wont work well, AX6 would serve you well but still dust due to the hotter temps they will handle

    I ordered some Brembo P54014. I don't expect them to be low dust, but surely they grab well. I will post the results

    The Brembo pads bite really well, they out-stop my tires...

    Definitely not low dust though LOL sacrifices must be made
