I used to have those cheap as brake pads from autozone but got tired of cleaning my wheels in the morning and by the afternoon they were dirty again.So I went NAPA and got the best brake pads they had so now I can drive for a whole week and you can berely see the brake dust building up. :cheesy: :) :cool:

Unless you have anti-lock brakes. I put ceramic brakes on my car and what a waste of money. Because ceramic brakes want to lock up and ABS keeps the brakes FROM locking up, they grind like crazy. Pain in my ass so I had to chuck 'em after a couple of months. Now, I'm afraid I have to use regular Raybestos and keep my wheels as clean as possible.

I drive my car a little too much for those. Since they block much of the air that cools your brakes, a lot of them cause your brakes to overheat. And besides, some of them make your wires look like hubcaps.

Yeah, the cheap pads at AutoZone will throw dust like a motherfucker, lol (I used to sell them). Go withthe better ones AutoZone has or the premium ones at any other auto parts. I guess thats what you get when you buy cheap. :biggrin:
