I've had good luck with "Performance" brand. Metallic & low dust. Last well.

Cool Re: Brake Pad Replacement Suggestions

For a comprehensive list of low/no dust pads. look through the many pages of threads on this forum, and the wheels & suspension Forum.
This subject is usually discussed several times a year. I just can't seem to locate a thread quickly right now.

EBC Red Stuff would be a good choice. Also, look at Satisfied GranSport6 pads.
