Suspension & Brakes - Low dust brake pads...???
03-17-2006, 07:11 PM
Can anyone recommend some brake pads that don't put off a lot of nasty dust? I bought some (el cheapos from Autozone) recently for my Tahoe, and my front wheels turn almost black within a couple of weeks. Can anyone recommend some "over the counter" (that I can get from my local parts store) brake pads that don't put off a bunch of dust?

I have had NO brake dust or noise since I switched to ceramic brake pads. hope that helps.

Ditto on the ceramic pads - I picked up a set from AutoZone with a lifetime warranty that didn't cost all that much and have them on our daily driver which is a Chevrolet Caprice Classic LS and it made a big difference in how dirty the wheels get. Very quiet operation too - but they are a bit more "grabby" than your average semi-metallics. Noticeable difference in the brake petal feel - but not a bad thing.
I have the KVR carbon fibre pads with the KVR cross-drilled plated rotors on my 30th TA. They brake really well with very little dust - but are pricey.
Hawk Ceramics and not much dust and no noise ever.
