Better brake pads?

Anyone have some DRW brake pad part numbers that wont turn your wheels black every day? Looking for ceramic or something that will not damage aluminum wheels.
Thanks!

I bought a set of the Wagner Severe Duty to have on hand for mine- haven't put them on yet. They are for emergency and commercial severe duty service.
No idea how much dust they'll emit- haven't had that issue with the OEM pads yet at 21,000 mi.

When the time comes I'm putting Power Stop brakes and rotors on. I put them on my F350 SD and they made a huge difference.

If I ever clean my wheels I'll get you some feedback on those.

I installed Wagner brakes in the rear and they are dust free. My stock pads in the rear were worn down to nothing at 36k miles. The wagners are ceramic from orieleys auto. There quiet too.

I had a pair of severe duty Wagner pads on my G6 a few years ago and while they lasted, their bite was meh. You didn't have to stand on it, but it definitely took longer to stop.

I was only driving 30k a year at that point around town and it made more sense to retain standard duty pads.
