I called 2 vendors and spoke with them and they pretty much agreed that the Hawk HP Plus was a good pad and streetable although a little dusty and noisy and additionally would wear the rotors a little harder, they said the Hawk ceramic was a good pad and better than the Akebono, they both seem to think the greens were also a little dusty and not as good as the Akebono or the Hawks.

Guys here report the Hawk HP Plus as being really noisy so I think those are out but I am surprised that the Akebono's squeal. Pretty much still brings me back to where I was with the Akebono vs the Hawk ceramics and learning for myself what the "initial bite" issue really is.
