    DeLorean Go - Green vs Red vs Yellow stuff pads (or OEM?)

    Anyone have any advice or experience with the different kinds of upgraded brake pads Go offers? I put in OEM pads about 10 years and 12k miles ago, and am considering dropping a new set in. I haven't really had any complaints with the OEM ones, they're nothing special but they stop the car. They do tend to squeal a bit when cold, despite all the anti-squeal shims in the world.

    What's the real difference between the green/red/yellow pads? Why would one pick one over the other? I see some of them call out that they aren't low dust, and given how tough the wheels are to clean I'd prefer to avoid as much dust as I can. So for that reason I'm leaning towards green.

    Open to advice!

    Links (just to front pads, I plan to do all 4 corners):

    This chart might help. It all depends on your driving style.

    Oh, hey cool. Thanks for that. Looks like, according to that, the Red is where I want to be. Low dust, good friction, good lifetime. Best compromise IMO. My "driving style" is "around the block a few times a month to warm it up and occasionally a 100-mile highway cruise"

    I prefer the red. Worked well for me for many years on other cars besides the D.
