Question "Best" replacement brake pads for OEM Brembos...

Now I know there are threads on this, I am familiar with the search function. What I am asking is the following, and let me define "best"?

I will not be tracking my Jeep...I want to AutoCross it once , but he stays on-road.
I do not prefer brake dust.
I prefer great stopping power; would sacrifice minimal brake dust for improved stoppage.
I want something that will last with normal driving.

I have had multiple brands: Stoptech, Hawk and now Wagner thermoquiets which has reduced the dust TREMENDOUSLY!! I am also pleased with their performance, though I had the rotor recall done at the same time...so new rotors were at play up front.

I am getting new front oem rotors installed and want to see if anyone has a recommendation and why, based on my criteria, they feel that would be a good replacement over the Wagners. I want to put new pads on since they already have to remove them.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Re: "Best" replacement brake pads for OEM Brembos...

I will be in the same boat soon enough....just tuning in as all I have is something I read somewhere that the Power Stop Z23 Evolution pads (1405 Front, 1053 Rear) were great, nearly dustless and real cheap like $100 for all Guess they are popular with the 392 and Hellcat Charger/Chally crowd...thought they sounded interesting...

Great info...the Wagnet TQ's were about $80 for the set...so it appears that $70-150 should be our price range. With the fronts more expensive? IIRC they were 15% more than the rears but cannot find my invoice

Never mind. Just read the next thread and TSB. I don't know how I missed this for so long. Yay! Time to get new rotors.

Do your front rotors have 3-4 slots in them, about 3" long? Early 14 builds had a recall on the fronts...if you don't have the slots, you are able to get replacements.

Re: "Best" replacement brake pads for OEM Brembos...

I used the Z23 pads front and rear to replace the the OEM Brembo pads as soon as I took delivery of my 16 Challenger Hellcat. They work well for me. They certainly save me countless time cleaning brake dust.

it's actually a TSB so only available during factory warranty which on brakes is 12k/12mos unless you have a rare "nice" dealer who finagles coverage...can always try if close on 12k/12mos but if far away highly unlikely...

I just got these too front and rear. Install coming soon along with my Mopar springs. Heard some great things about these pads. Lots of Hellcat and Corvette owners using these.
