My brakes pads are finally worn and was wondering is it worth getting performance break pads or just the standard ones??

has anyone got reccomendations on performance break pads and a rough price??

always invest in the best pads you can get, it'll be worth it when you really need them. but the downside to "performance" pads is that they have more brake dust, just means more cleaning, but who really doesnt like that comprimise.

Best to buy would be either the Bendix Ultimates or the EBC Greenstuffs

Both are easy to get are top quality pads with out going serious competition pads.

Combined with good rotors these will pull your up in no time

Rough costs for the pads will be round the $115 for a set (2 pads)
