    My rear brake pads are about gone at 30K miles. Fronts are probably 30%. No track time and a lot of highway and traffic during my commute to work. I have no cracks and just the normal slight grooves in the front rotors, back rotors are smooth. Can I just change the pads or are rotors required too? Again, I don't track, but I am looking for pads with a good mix of low fade and minimal dust. Which pads (and rotors if absolutely needed) would you suggest for my needs?

    I changed my brake pads to the R1 Concepts Ceramic pads. I changed mine out at like 7k kms, so just swapped the pads myself.
    Performance for the street has been fine, brake dust has been non-existent and no more squeaks. Price was really good :)

    They only have the rears from what I can tell from R1's website. Did you change the front pads as well?

    That's weird. Maybe give them a call? I purchased front and rears. I think it was about 60-70 USD for the 4 pads.

    Normal for rears to wear out faster than other cars - brake vectoring.

    I had two sets of R1 pads on my civic Si over the years and will likely use R1 when I do the brakes on my CTR for daily purposes. Highly recommend that company. I've led a few of my friends to their site and helped with brake jobs and nobody has ever had any complaints for typical daily driving purposes.

    I was looking for a pad that would minimize dust for everyday driving. Put on the Hawk Performance Ceramics front and back. Driven about 1k miles now. Definitely lower dust, but less bite from stock. Stopping power still very good for daily use and the reduction of dust helps keep the wheels looking nice. Squealing at low braking speed also reduced. Not the lowest cost option at about $260 for front and rears.
