EBC Greenstuff by far is the best for hard stops and normal. You can go on from there to blue/red stuff for track use etc. But for road/thrash use greenstuff is fantastic.

However, like ultimates they will wear your rotors out a bit (not as much as ultimates though).

I used to use performax even tho no body liked them i never had a issue, warmer they got the harder they held for me and never gave me brake dust or brake fade!

Although! Now i have the 330mm elgt setup on the front so i dont have much of an issue with braking at all now lol..

EBC Greenstuff can be purchased from Cam @ Hightek Brakes, or Joe @ Crescent Motors.

Just a personal thought opinion here, I machined my front discs at the same time that the EBC Greenstuff pads went on. My rear pads were were almost down to nothing as well, in fact they were the original factory fitted pads and I was deciding whether to treat the rears the same as the fronts. I chose not to. I figured that because 75% of the braking is performed by the front wheels that I'll just replace the rears with regular pads as I was low on finances at the time.
