I agree, awesome pads. They bite well but I have found them to produce more dust then other pads. Not a problem if you regularly wash the car.

I'm interested to know which pads produced less dust for you then the Green Stuff. I loved them for the fact that they produced so little of it.

Well these are the first pads I've used in my RL bbk. I used several wilwood pads in my old wilwood bbk and they produced much less dust then these. When I had my stock brakes, the oem pads seemed to produce less dust as well.

With so many different brake setups, I guess it's a bit hard to compare pad dusting.

Thought I would give some input since its been close to 3 weeks or so on these...first off I had to get new front rotors awesome more money out of my pocket. The rear rotors were resurfaced,turned whatever. Ok so first impression upon overlooking the rims for scratches was ahh cool a little more color in the wheel well (uhm yeah green pads)...very good bite as mentioned and to me a little less dust than normal pads but nothing to write home about....I had no squealing until day two and little at that just when depressing the brake gently and coming to a stop. Today there is no more squealing and I'm happy with the purchase. I would recommend these brake pads :up:

I am considering red pads as a future purchase. I have had yellow and find their cold bite to be poor for regular street driving. They are excellent when driving through some curved roads and get warm but I need something more consistent for the street but able to take the heat.

Anyone experience with red v yellow v green?

Not sure why I wasn't able to double quote you and my previous response but my car has just under 50k miles....I may have been had with the new rotors for the front but seeing my wife and little girl are daily in the accord right now I'm not willing to risk the car not being safe. I know the brake pads were shot though....heavier aftermarket wheels on stock brake parts is no good

I live in mountains with a lot of curvy roads. Friend and I both have red on all 4 corners. I feel they are good for all around driving.

Daily driving lots of stop and go? If so, CMAX from Auto Zone got almost 55,000miles out of the front and rear still good! and its Life time warranty.

Do the EX cars have different brakes than the LX? I have an auto LX car and the factory pads went around 40K, the rear was in the metal. I put Hawks HPS pads on and Brembo blanks and they didn't fair any better? On my third set now @ 84K miles. Just put some Wagner's on it with off the shelf rotors.
