OK........hows the stopping power? Noise? (Thermo-Quiet) longevity? How is it on the stock rotors?

These pads are not safe for high speed stops.......the price is right but ????

Thermo-Quiet... isn't that a O'reillys brake pad line? 

I would use hawk, oem or endless myself staying factory rotor

 

I have 20in Rohana that are coated with IGL coatings, but i still spray them when drying with a silicone based wheel protectant

 

try https://www.autogeek...rotectants.html

for coatings as a protective layer over the ceramic coating, or even wheels that aren't coated.

I use this ( I forget the brand) on my Lexus with rpf1s and it makes the dust almost hose off.

Ceramic coating the wheels will make a world of a difference.  Combine this with a ceramic pad (make sure you find one that's compatible with a steel rotor) and you'll be golden.  Washing wheels will become a breeze

Zero noise while stopping, 50% less dust and stopping power reduced by 15% (guesstimate).  I'm very happy with the results, the squeal was driving me crazy.

Endless brake pads will do the trick. Recently installed and have seen very little brake dust. OEM brake pads are a mess.




I Have endless pads an mine still has a ton of break dust after a 5 minute drive. It kills me to have to clean them after every ride.

Yes, ceramic coating on the wheels and brake caliper is the way to go. Detailing wheels is a pain in the ass. Can't count how manny times I've cut my fingers cleaning them and that's with wheel woolies and gloves!

Should definitely consider the paint protection especially if you have black rims
