Default Best Disc Brake Pads with little or No Brake Dust

I have a 1995 Suburban, Im easy on the brake pedal, stops great but the brake dust is nasty on the polished wheels. Any suggestions on what brake pads to use that have little or no brake dust.

Akebono is a high end brand that is OE on General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi Motors, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru and Isuzu. Pricier than other aftermarket brands but low noise/dust.

Wagner Thermoquiet. Ceramic pads. Very little brake dust and the dust that is there is a light brown, not black.

Akebono like the 1st person said or Centric 105 series, if you tow centric 106 severe duty.

Wagners are what we call squeek in a box, might as well put on the yellow box pads.

I guess they didn't use these on my wife's 2014 CRV. The front wheels are black 100 miles after a wash. She only has 1500 miles on it so far and I'm about to take it to the dealer and complain.. Can't keep the wheels clean and she drives like a 70 hear old..

Don't use Friction Master Ceramic. Those things have squealed on my car since day one. I've had them off twice. Scuffed the pad and put anti-squeal on the back. It didn't help.

So she is dragging the brakes everywhere? That would explain the dust issues.

Lol. No, she's gentle on them. The pads just suck.
