    will i only have 37k on my 02 so I have stock but I can't wait to replace them. I hate the break dust all over my wheels.

    On my last tacoma I had ceramic duralast gold pads. They did not make my wheels dusty!

    But I think when I am due for pads I am going with EBC Yellow pads. Depending on the wear on my rotors I might get some slotted rotors.

    Yellows? Aren't those semi street/race pads? Heard they don't bite good when cold? I was looking at the Green 7000s cause they claim the lowest dust or was even thinking about Reds. Never thought about Yellows.

    In your opinion you think they're worth it over the Green 7000s? My concerns are dust & eating up rotors/wear. I'm in Socal so cold is not an issue.
