Black Magic used to use and recommend EBC Yellow Stuff brake pads as the best until they discovered an even better stopping pad. I'm using the Black Magic pads and at this point, you'd have to go with the Vanco Big Brake kit to get better brakes. Even Vanco is shipping their Big Brake kits with Black Magic pads now.
Thanks! 10-4.

Blackpony04 I'll never use anything but ceramics on any of my vehicles because of their lack of dust. They stop no different in my experience but the clean wheels more than justify the cost difference.

Old Grunt I have a 99 TJ and have made the switch to ceramic's. The metallic's have a tendency, up here in Maine at least, to corrode due to the use of the State's DOT fondness for road salt. Any type of metallic up here is heavily prone to this. The ceramic's tend to resist this stuff a lot better. That and the use of brakes up here, due to the moose, the deer and the inevitable snowmobiler, who can't seem to practice any type of safe road crossing, makes the use of ceramic's the better way to go.

metal41mulisha Semi metallics are also a little rougher on your rotors as well

WaterDR Metallic should stop better but make more mess. I would run ceramic unless you a towing a lot.

Ceramic vs Semi-Metallic Brake Pads?

I'm looking @ Posi Quiet Premium Brake Pads and I would like to know if you prefer Ceramic or Metallic pads. I'm thinking ceramic 'cause they last longer, less brake dust, good braking power, but slightly higher price. Any thoughts?
