EBC brake pads

Anyone have experience with EBC green stuff brake pads? Looking for good replacement pads, My truck is used for towing all the time. Have 120000 miles on 2006 and been through three sets of pads. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

EBC pads have a very high metallic content. This takes a toll on the rotors. I think Hawk makes pads for our trucks. Look into them as they are a solid company.

Hawk does make pads for our trucks. I'm running the HPS pads and they do feel slightly better than the stock pads, but they fade quick. A few 60 to 0 stops and they start to lose bite. I'm going to try the LTS pads on my next set, but that'll be a long time from now.

I have those exact pads. I love them. no noise, better than oem grip, and they look brand new after 30k miles. still plenty of meat on them. I'd buy them again.
