Pete,

what disks do you have on?

My PF .11's are fairly wheel friendly and don't break the wallet either!
Just the standard Brembos at present, but thinking of getting Performance frictions :D

For good braking Pete, you're going to have to comprimise with the Dust i'm affraid :( but saying that, if you do go AP's, then i can always lend a hand fitting them ;)

Choose carefully when buying pads for a car with white wheels :cry:. Unless you like scrubbing wheels every weekend, you'll soon be at the refurbers.

Standard pads are pretty kind. If you get into some the serious pads, which do work great, they can generate some evil dust that will bond with your wheels if you don't clean them very regularly. Speaking from experience with DS3000's and a long trip to Spa :D.

I would go with DS2500's as a middle ground compromise, but don't let the dust build up. I know some of the Performance Friction pads contained quite aggressive material, but understand they've changed that now. Haven't used them, so can't comment any further.

I run AP brakes, but heard very good things about the PF set up from numerous people. Only downside was the metallic dust and particles, but this is meant to be better now although I think it's still a fairly aggressive pad.

Pic of the original PF pads/discs working below. This is not what you want on your nice new wheels :D.

you will get the above if you use the 1001.10 pads which are the track variants, although apprently not as bad as they used to be. There were rumors of orange staining on the wheels etc.

I've had mine on for about 4 months now and have not complaints, i've actaully found them better for brake dust than most other pads i've tested!

The diskes look :cool: too!

I used .10 on a wet trackday & the whole car turned orange, the iron dust turned rusty & destroyed my wheels :blah:

but
the .11 are a very good pad & very little dust :)

Nothing wrong with the .11's I have them on my MR and they are mint... :D

Did have the .01's at first which do make a mess of your wheels..

I would go for the PF with .11 pads.
