Are you looking for low dust and quiet, or something that has more bite that can handle an oocasional AutoX or canyon run? No one pad does it all well.

go with the Autozone deluxe model pads, they are quiet and cheap. No reason to cough up for performance pads if you dont race the car.

I purchased Axxis Ultimates from Jeff : #271&304 here: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...932610&page=11
I'm very happy with my choice, and so are my passengers.
