Looking for suggestions on pads and where to buy them.

I've used Axxis Ultimates and Metal Masters before....Ultimates don't last loing at all, got about 23k miles on them. The metal masters gave me about 35k or so, but they were rather noisy.

I'm willing to sacrifice a little braking performance for longer life. I don't really brake much anyway. :eek: They'll be paired with Brembo blanks.

Currently, I'm using stock pads with Brembo slotted rotors.
Honestly, they feel just as good as the EBC pads I had

i'm on Metal Masters now, and i dun really like them too... noisy and creates too much brake dust... go OEM or AEM... AEM is as dustless as OEM, with a lil more braking power

Has anyone tried the Hawk Ceramic pads? I was looking at them or possibly the aem or brembo pads.

Any good online stores that you guys recommend?

AEM Nissan pads last a good amount, they don't produce too much dust, they have decent bite. I'm on my 2nd set, and the first set last me roughly 2 years.
