Default Brake Pad Recommendations

Ok, so I ordered the Alien Brakes D/S Rotors...but now I gotta pick up some pads. Figured i'd see what you guys recommend going with? I'm not willing to spend the money on something like Hawk pads, want something dust-free, noise-free, and decently priced....thoughts?

Stay away from Centric PosiQuiets, I didn't like the mU factor on them, very poor grip.

EBC Red Stuff, after the initial dust from the break in coating and the zinc on the rotors wearing off mine are dust free and the stopping power and fade resistance is right up there.

Man I hated thos damn wagner ThermoQuiets, they sucked for my Z32s, only good thing about them were no noise. When I had my 6thgen calipers I had some ceramic pads from Advance Auto, they were pretty good, low dust, no noise, good stopping power. Whatever you go with make sure they are Ceramic pads though

Called a buddy of mine that runs a NAPA...he said he uses their Premium Ceramics on his RX7 with drilled/slotted rotors and they work great with no noise and almost no dust...so for $50 after his hookup, I got all 4. Worst case, I hate them and swap them out, but for $50 for all 4, I'll take the shot.

Probably the best recommendation I've seen in this thread.

I am using the EBC Green Stuff 6000 SUV pad on my FX. I would have used REDs but they don't make it in that size for my FX.

They are a ceramic/kevlar blend which bite harder than 100% ceramics. EBC pads are also made in the UK to very strict QC standards compared to some far east pads. I think they bite even harder than the ones on my Maxima (Axxis Ultimates).

Like you said, another nice thing with EBC pads is they have a "BED-IN" coating applied to the face of the pad. It basically serves to SCRAPE the rotor clean and prepare it for the new pad to bed in properly. I didn't have to perform any 6-10 sequential acceleration and braking runs to break them in.

I don't like it. Almost same stopping power as OEM, just a little bit better. I will definitely prefer Hawk HPS even with closed eyes. I don't care about dust.
