Akebono works decent. I got a set for my b13 (with b14 front brakes) a little while aback and was an improvement to the wagner that I normally used. Too bad I had to switch bad to the wagner as I never got them again....

My experience with Wagner is that they don't grip properly when cold, but are okay when warm.

Trinidad Brakes and Clutch Ltd is the dealer for Mintex, but their subsidary sellers usually are cheaper, guessing for market turnover
past experience with Mintex is good

What would be the absolute best brand of disc pad for a Y11 wingroad...I know of a couple high end brands but not sure they would make products for such a "low end" car...

High end in terms of what ? Stopping power and performance?

Quietness and lack of dust?

Longest lasting?

there is EBC ultimax which is sorta OEM, those worked nice for me but i ordered off amazon

other than that, a set of National, Titanium, GIC,FBL pads, all are probably under 150 for a set and probably available at any parts place
i think once ur aware and use predictive braking rather than reactive braking yuh could use anything and be ok yes

I would add mintex if he could find it for an AD wagon.. I'm not sure if they do make it for his model, but I have nothing but good things to say about it..

Just remember, if you are on those tiny 13" wheels and tyres that ad wagons come with, you will probably have way more brake than traction

Used bosch, excellent for daily driver and dusts very little. Can even be pushed and no fade experienced

Don't bother with wagner... Yes it wont dust but the brake performance is way below that of the bosch, mintex etc...

I say go with the bosch price for price...

That being said, if dusting is not a concern the mintex is an excellent pad.. It has been excellent on my pajero

so what will you guys recommend for 300zx brakes which wouldnt be noisy, hold properly and won't get your rims dirty with its dust? Used hawk already but it was extremely noisy and left my rims dirty all the time so not really interested in them.

Akebono ProACT ceramic is the best ceramic brake I have used. It is OEM on a lot of cars and will offer decent performance with NO dusting... All of this comes at a cost. Firstly, you probably wont find it locally, secondly it'll be almost twice the cost of equivalent ceramics like wagner, monroe etc..

Centric Posi-quiet would be a good substitute for the Akebono if you can find it in your application...

Just remember that when you looking for clean pads you going to sacrifice something in performance, but the brands i mentioned will probably do better than anything sold locally

so i've been hearing about wagner for a while now but never used it. So is it any good? Noiseless?
no major dust? And is it suitable for a turbo charged car?

Jerry, wagner pads have been discussed ad nauseum on this thread.. All you had to do was scroll up about 6 posts...

First thing is that the wagner imported into trinidad is the lowest of the bunch, they will do the job on a daily driver, don't dust and are quiet.... For performance applications, don't even bother

Yep. Wagner QuickStop is their lower line... The one you really should be hoping to get is the ThermoQuiet but I have rarely seen it in T+T and when I have it has been massively overpriced..

I not saying anything is wrong with wagner.. .It is probably better than a lot of the no name brands we get locally, but it is by no means a performance pad and doesn't market itself as such..

^^^^
Using these (thermoquiet) on the grand vitara...
Paid 5xx for the set...
I was shocked at the price but it better than paying close to 900 at the firm..

Review: best non-OEM brake pad i tried so far.
