    Need new pads and rotors, any suggestions?

    I'm currently searching for new pads and rotors for my 2006 wrx, and would like to get something better than stock for a reasonable price. I would like a low dust set up, and some additional stopping power over stock. if anyone could point me in the right direction i would appreciate it, thanks.

    those look solid, but is there a set with a better price with comparable performance?

    i checked out that site, but most say they exclude the WRX, and for the ones that dont say that, it says 2.5 rs, or something else, but never clarifies whether it is for the WRX.

    I essentially went with this minus the braided lines:

    StopTech Stage 2, 86-836-01224/838-06224/838-05224, Subaru Impreza WRX StopTech Stage 2

    Love them, they are great out on the track and I don't get any fade.

    Any ceramic based pad will be low dust. Hawk makes a ceramic HPS pad. No need to get fancy rotors for the street. Just buy some quality OEM replacements from NAPA or something. Wider tires will stop a car faster than an expensive brake upgrade.
