Best low dust brake pads?

time for a set of brakes. I actually had the driver's rear go out on me and I put in a NAPA replacement and now I have black dust all over my chrome wheels. need to replace that and the others soon.

I do tow so they have to handle car hauling and be low dust.

I put the middle of the road NAPA ones on my one ton. There's not much dust at all from them.. The cheap ones throw too much dust and the hardest ones (most money) don't throw any but there so hard that they warp the rotors..

Re: Best low dust brake pads?

Performance Friction Carbon Metallic and Z Rated Pads.

I have been running Performance Friction 2 Piece Floating Rotors up front and Z Rated Pads at all 4 corners. Installed them back in the summer of 2005 and they are still on the truck. I now have 60,000 miles on them and so far there has been NO NOISE AT ALL from the pads. Thinking about doing the same all over again.As far as dust, I don't have a dust issue from the pads at all. I have a few friends that went with local cheap pads and the dust from the cheap pads is always all over the wheel.

I talked to a guy from a website named Diesel Filters Online .com and he quoted me a good price for replacement rotors and pads. Cheaper than I paid 5 years ago.
OReillys auto parts sell them but looking on the OReillys website the price was pretty high.

Re: Best low dust brake pads?

I've had them for about 30,000 miles and towed quite a bit. They have probably about 75% life left.

my buddy used these on his police F-150 and he loved them. He pulled his patrol boat, etc.. and was involved in lots of pursuits and they always performed well. He did say that they are more aggressive and in his uses they wore the rotors faster but even for me, that is a trade i'd go w/. Nothing worse than slamming on the brakes and just gliding slowly to a stop.
