It's that time of the year again. I need new pads. I'm sick of OEM ones. I run my car too hard and they fade quickly. Basically im looking for better stopping power. I've done quite a bit of research so far,but would rater see some posts that havent been tainted by my research.
What are good performance pads?
What prices have you guys been seeing?
What are the different types of materials? I don't think I want semi-metallic again. Ceramic might be the wya to go. How much more expensive are ceramic pads?
I don't care about brake dust so dont steer me in the direction of any sort of brake dust reducer or any pads that work as well as OEM, because OEM is insufficient for my needs.
After I pick one and get them replaced i'll do a post about performance brade pads and a review of which ones I bought.
(i have the modding bug. I need to sell my car and I keep putting money into it )

I considered all of those. Earlier this morning I ordered PBR AXXIS Ultimate ceramic brake pads from TMS. Hopefully ill be satisfied with them.
