Brake Pads Recommendation


Recommended Posts

04 C2 will need new pads in the future and I would like recommendation on pads. I do not track this daily driver and am seeking cost effective replacements that produce limited brake dust and best place to procure them. Replies always appreciated

I was just researching this yesterday as I may be doing a full brake job in the coming weeks. I think Textar is the OEM supplier and mintex seems to be the option that came up in threads for dustless pads. I have used akebonos in past German cars, but I read they don't make them for the 996's. As for rotors, pelican lists sebros and OEMs.

I am not that impressed with OEM brake feel (maybe just me, YMMV). It feels like I have to press the pedal HARD to get it to bite. Quick decelerations mean literally having to stand on the pedal. So I am going to be trying aftermarket alternatives when I do brakes.

Last winter I installed Akebono pads from Tire Rack. Work great on a street vehicle with very little dust compared to OEM.

I think the akebonos are not available for C4S/Turbos. Pelican lists them for base/C2 cars, but not C4S.
