Best brake pads?

I've pretty much decided that I'm going to go ahead and change the brake pads on the Corvette, even though they're not all the way worn out, yet. The brake dust those things put out is unbelieveable. So what's the best brake pad I can swap 'em with. Performance, low noise, and low brake dust are all important to me. I don't know much about brake pads, so let me have it.

Re: Best brake pads?

my sister and i were just talking about this not that long ago, we went through 3 sets of brake pads in a week cause they gave her one brand and it turned out to be a crappy brand, so yeah, i would like to know some opinions on this as well

I have heard that Hawk HPS(High Performance Street) pads are very good brake pads for a street car.

+1+1 the buick out-stops my 02 rustang GT now... and its a buick, I can only imagine the pads on a vette with larger pads/rotors + better pistons... not too dusty, but they get noisy when they get low... mine also wore out in ~25k miles of my heavy driving but the rotors weren't damaged, just swapped out pads (slotted rotors)
