    I'm really happy with the RedStuff pads from EBC along with the dimpled and slotted rotors. WS6Store.com has the fronts for 88.99 and the rears for 79.99. They don't fade at all on the street, don't dust much, and aren't noisy for a performance pad. I've got about a year and 20k miles on the set in mixed driving and I expect at least another 20k.

    The previous owner of my car installed Red Stuffs all around and slotted rotors on the front. The Red Stuffs were good, but turned my wheels copper with the dust. When they needed to be replaced, I went with Wagner Thermo-Quiet ceramic pads. In my opinion, they are just as good and they don't leave any dust on my wheels. I ran the AutoZone Morse pads on my old Chevy Beretta. They were pretty good for the price.

    Thanks 4 the replies guys.
    I wanted to get the red stuff pads. But for the price on one pair I can go to autozone and get two pairs.
    I have heard that red stuff are not noise and dnt dust the rim that much. Idk bout that.
    I found some on eBay. For like 50 dollars. I'm a give a try on that.

    EBC red stuff here and no problems at all. No noise or dust. I'm running them with R1 concept rotors. I used Hawk before and no issues either. i only buy hawk or EBC depending on which one is on sale.

    My thinking is as long as you get a good quality pad you can't go wrong. I myself prefer Bendix and Wagner pads. Both are a high quality pad and don't bust the bank.

    I have drilled/slotted rotors and my 1st set of pads were red stuff and they were good pads. Not too bad on the dust and stopped well. I have Wagner thermo quiets now and honestly there is very little difference that I have noticed maybe a little more dust after some hard driving but they are cheaper and easy to get at most auto parts stores.
