Default Aftermarket pads with the least brake dust?

I had axxis pads and my wheels have been much dirtier - contemplating just switching to OEM for street driving and popping in a race pad when I need it.

So are there any minimally dusting aftermarket pads?

it's not the same pads as you have but i've used two sets of hawk hps.

I don't think I did bed-in propery on first set, they generated lots of dust.
the second set, i tried bed-in harder properly, much less dust.

i agree about the hawk hps. i have them on my sti right now and they don't feel very grippy. i'm basing this on mostly for daily-driving applications, not track.

+1 on the crap feel of the HPS

Only a very small improvement over OEM BUT they dust much much less... and I think its safe to say they dust the least out of any brake pads I've tried... perhaps except the duralast ones...

Porterfield R4-S. Low dust, good performance and long life. Not cheap but worthwhile.
