Default Ceramic or teflon break pads

I understand that drilled/slotted rotors is a waste for a daily driver.

But can i use Ceramic or Teflon break pads on my stock rotors?
Will they reduce break dust on my wheels? (im flogging tired of having to clean my rims every week.)

YES! Use ceramic. Raybestos and NAPA have them. Do a search here or at PTE and you'll find part #s.

I met MX-5 in person tonight and he told me about the ones that napa offer. Then about 3 or 4 others said they also have them and like them. Guess now i just have to save up the 90 bucks.
