Who makes the BEST no dust or low dust brake pads?

I want to know from you guys who makes the best no dust, or very low dust brake pads out there?

I am cleaning my wheels, especially the front ones every week. I need to buy some new pads that won't require cleaning so often.

What do you guys recommend?

Thanks.

Do a search and I think you will find a lot about Wagner Thermo Quiets and CarQuest Blues. Both high quality semi-metallics. I have the Wagners but would not hesitate to use the CarQuest.

Anyone have chrome wheels with these new pads? If so, how soon can you start to see some brown cloud over the wheels?

I was told Porterfield pads were great, and yet I have a sheet of dust in 1-2 days of minimal driving. I highly recommend NOT getting Porterfield pads for dust reduction purposes.

I got my Wagner Thermo quiets at Rock Auto, at about $34.79 per axel and shipping was 9.81 for a total of $79.39 and never left the house. Came UPS within 2 or 3 days...

PRICELESS man, either Wagner or Carquest (Raybestos). Do a search and read for a long time, plenty of good said about these 2 brands.

Would you agree that you should do front and rear replacement? Or just front?

I got BMD-1011. As the guy asked me questions, I just told him what he needed to know. I'm hoping this is the right size. Anyone got a P/N for the rears (CarQuest Blue Semi-Metallic)?

The rears were not dusting, I waited till they were badly worn to replace.
