Low Dust Brake Alternative to OEM

Recommended Posts

After hours of searching on this site I decided to start this thread.

I have copious amounts of brake dust on the wheels of my 99 996. I believe my pads to be OEM at only 38k on the ODO.

What is a low dust alternative to OEM?

Thanks,

D.

I used Pagid S (for Sport) pads on my '99 Carrera. The are designed as a high performance street pad which is suitable for "light track use". I found them to work well for autocrossing; on the street they would sometimes squeal when cold despite being shimmed but they still stopped well, unlike race pads which need heat in them to work properly. They are also advertised to be "rotor friendly" although I'm sure they are more abrasive than stock. To your question, the Pagid S pads did dust quite a bit less than stock, but dusting was not eliminated completely. FYI, they had no provision for the wear sensors used with the stock pad.
