(Thread Starter)
Looking at replacing the brake pads on my car.
I want low dust pads...the OEM pads get the rims too dirty too fast.
Heard Low dust pads don't stop as good and/or are noisy.
Anyone with first hand experience what do you think.
Thanks in Advance

PBR/ AXXIS Metal Masters are my choice. Almost no dust and they bring my 1988 750 to a halt rapidly. I can see no difference in braking effect from the factory PAGID or JURID pads.

Tht's weird. Mine are already bedded for sure but there is always a copious amount of dust. I dont think TMS would send/sell me bad pads as they still work great!
