    $ Affordable $, low dust brake pads?

    What do you all recommend for a set of brake pads that create low dust and are affordable?

    AKEBONO is the best hands down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    They are not cheap, but are reasonable and hands down I think they are the best available. I know from personal use as well as installing on customers cars.

    o and i got the rotors for like 30buks each, idk prices may vary though from state to state. gook luck

    Orion helped me out on mine. Bendix brakes are awesome. No dust on mine. and its a DD. Autozone Pads got raped over a months time. Rims were black.

    reasonable pad for a really reasonable price, i know they are not the best but for now until i get some free spending cash for my maro theyl have to do. it also depends on how the car is driven, ill have to try those bendix, but when funds permit, ill see if the a-zone pads suck in the next couple of months. thanks for the suggestion though.
