    I run the stock pads. They seem to dust the least.

    i run Axxis Metal-Masters (semi-metallic). Ceramic is your best bet for no brake dust, but my metal masters will last forever and I've given it a bunch of "tests" at 100+ MPH and they're lasted.

    The only downside to semi-metallic brakepads is that they take time to heat up. The first few uses of the day feels like they aren't going to stop from 35 or w/e. Ceramics heat instantly, but fall apart faster.

    Also, I have drilled and slotted rotors. The slots in theory "chew up" the pads, but with the semi-metallic brakes I've had no such problems.

    If you're worried about brake dust, wax your wheels. It really helps dust to not stick.
