Best low dust brake pads?

time for a set of brakes. I actually had the driver's rear go out on me and I put in a NAPA replacement and now I have black dust all over my chrome wheels. need to replace that and the others soon.

I do tow so they have to handle car hauling and be low dust.

I always tell people to use OE pads. They are clean and won't be noisy

whats "forever". with about 50% towing and 50% of the time I have 35s on it, my drivers rear went down to the metal at 56k. I replaced that one bc I was 500 miles form home and now at 58k Im getting the warning squeak.

I just picked up a set of the Hawk Ceramic LTS pads.

I have about 5/16" left with 96k miles on original pads. My dad tows heavy with his '03 and has about the same with 65k miles. If you went through a set in 56k you must not ever have your foot off a pedal. Throttle, brake, throttle, brake wears them out faster, try coasting a little

Im thinking the big wheel / tire combo does a lot. the truck is mostly on the highway and I don't think Ive ever floored it or gone over 80mph. its driven extremely casual.

Cartamanea is running 35's too

Does the trailer you tow have or need brakes?

I love my hawk pads, and I run 35's too... no dust in the rear, minimal dust after a few thousand in the front.

Which Hawk pads do you have? There's like 4 different options including ceramic. I've always heard ceramic for low dust, but not sure if their stopping power is as good on this heavy of a truck.
