Re: Help!!! Brake pads that dont give off dust

Performax Pads almost as good as ultimates once warm, no dust, little fade, long life, kind on rotors. But be warned they are terrifying when cold.

I think they also fashioned a set of pads out of Mulga on one episode of "bush mechanics", you'd only have to worry about splinters, not dust with those.

Re: Help!!! Brake pads that dont give off dust

I am yet to find a pad as good as the ultimates that puts out less dust, the Greenstuff is a close second.

How often do you plan on washing you car/wheels EATurbo?
I run ultimates and wash mine once a week and there is dust, but its not like the Black front wheels you see on alot of cars.

EBC Greenstuff, best pad i've ever used! A good hard pad that has saved my ass many-a-time and would leave the thinnest of thinnest dust linings around the wheel.

Re: Help!!! Brake pads that dont give off dust

Ultimates tend to squeek a bit, especially when hot. Its good when i know the owner of the main distributor of EBC too hehehe
