IMHO, Porterfield Carbon-Kevlar is the only way to go. http://www.porterfield-brakes.com/pads.html They have the bite and feel of OEM, but with very little dust, they're kind to your rotors, and if you r're relatively nice to them (i.e.: you're not sporting one of those 'I brake for radar' bumper stickers), you can easily get 40 to 50k miles out of a set, yet run fast and hard.
