Question Does anyone know what are some good braking pads?

Its time to change mine but I am confused on what to get.
Also how much do those run? Thanks.

I had Carbotech bobcats on my WRX and liked them. I have Hawk Preformance Ceramic pads on my STI and while they bite well, resist fading and have low dust the squeal pretty bad.

you need to specify what you'll be using the brake pads for.

Hawks and EBC make great brake pads.

my guess would be braking...but he could be using them to gain a little on the top end..................................

Akebono pads. Almost completely dust free. Best pads I've used thus far.

If you're going to be driving on the street mainly, I'd recommend the Hawk HPS pads. I've had them on the last two cars I've owned..I love them!
