Less dust = less bite

more dust = better bite

Dustless brands to look for are PBR and Akibono

PF Z-Rated are great, and so are the Hawk ceramic. Typically, ceramic will have much less dust.

alright thanks guys, I'll tell my buddy to look into some of those brands, although I have a slight suspicion that performance friction pads are going to be pretty expensive
