I'm using the PBR Deluxe, and they just don't have the 'bite' that the stock brake pads have. They also squealed like a pig until I made some shims for them (brake-squeal goop did nothing for the noise).

If all you care about is less brake dust, and don't mind giving up some performance, then go for 'em. But if you don't mind washing your wheels often, stick with the stock pads.

: : What do you think? Are they quite or would I need to use some kind of dampening material? And do they dust a lot? Im using them as regular street pads. thx

: Here's the deal. On the plus side, they are the cleanest pads bar none. On the minus side, they do NOT 'bite' as well as stock pads and it takes more 'leg' to stop, they tend to squeal more, especially when used on the rears, and they tend to fade pretty easily, ie, 3 hard stops from over 70 and you'll be in fade city.
