Cant decide! Hawk LTS or SD pads?

I got an 05 350 that I daily drive and tow 10K#s once or twice a week? How do the LTS pads hold up to that weight? Are the SD pads cold performance bad? What is your experience with either pads. Also any experience with EBC?

The LTS are made for our sized trucks. They hold up good. They are an all around good brake pad. Even towing that much weight.
The SD pads are made for much heavier trucks. Not recommended for a super duties IIRC.
I have Hawk ceramic, they are decent. Not as low dust as I would like though

I run the super duties on my 250. They will hold up to the heat better. There cold performance is no bad but not quite as good as when they get a little heat in them. Still there is plenty of grip in them when they are cold and they only get better as they warm up.

Good to hear! I was leaning towards ther SD pads but was alittle concerned about there cold stopping. What do you think about the brake dust with those pads?

There is some brake dust for sure but I'll put up with the dust (which is not excessive IMO) for the braking power. I have used them on several trucks and like them a lot.
