Replacement brake pads

Do you guys have any preference for replacements other than OEM?

If you are close to Autozone, get the OEM replacement from Duralast (less brake dust compared to the race pads), it's lifetime if you don't take it down to the metal.

NO, AUTOZONE SUCKS ASS
Stay away from autozone breaks. they are complete shitl.

--------------------

For a local source i would say pepboys. you get 20% if you order the brakes pads online and pick them up in the store.

It well worth avoiding the cheap pads, unless you enjoy changing them out every 3-6 months and get a hard-on from the sound of sqweeking brakes.

On the low end (from pepboys) i would go with the
Wagner ThermoQuiet Ceramic

in the middle
Akebono ProAct Ultra-Premium Ceramic

on the high end (and will likely need to be special ordered)
Akebono Performance Ultra-Premium Ceramic

Make sure you bed them as instructed and you'll be rollin or not rollin since were talking brakes.

Note
Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.

How To Bed-In/Burnish Brake Pads
After installing new brake pads, make 6-to-10 stops from approximately 30-35 MPH applying moderate pressure.
Make an additional 2-to-3 hard stops from approximately 40-45 MPH.
DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
Allow at least 15 minutes for the brake system to cool down.
After step 4 is completed, your new Hawk Performance brake pads are ready for use.

I daily drive my car and Autozone brake pads work fine. No noise or cleaning my wheels from brake dust all the time. I had StopTech sport pads and I felt like I had to clean my wheels almost everyday. You just need to know what pads you want for the stopping power you need.

I used Hawk HPS and stoptech slotted rotors on my Type-S. The pads are great, highly recommend, I've used them on a number of cars in the past. The slotted rotors though I will not do again.. I can feel the slots through the brake pedal as well as hear them, and I do not like it.

On every car I've had Hawk HPS's on, they lack some bite when its cold (around freezing or less I'd say) something to consider if you don't get much heat into your pads when daily driving

"...looking for Opinions", that's the thing. You know they worked well and lasted reasonably well, but people will give you the opinions that they have, not facts. What good does that do?

Plus if they don't have a stock car or drive on the track, the information they have won't apply to your situation.

Akebono pads for me, quite and long lasting, with very little dusting. Made it Japan,
was rated #1 pads for all JDM's.. but pricey.

Akebono is also the Original Equipment Manufacturer for our brake pads.
