Pads- Axxis Delux or Centric Posi Quiet Ceramic

The Axxis can be had from Turner Motorsports and the Centrics can be had at Zeckhausen Racing. The are close in price. Any thoughts on these two pads? I am looking for street pads that don't dust like crazy yet still stop the car.

Between the two, the Axxis pads will brake better than the Posi Quiet pads. If you wanted Posi Quiet, go with the semi-metallic pads.

I really like the Axxis PBR semi-metallics. Far less dust than OEM pads, quiet, great bite but not grabby, easy to modulate. I've noticed some minor concentric grooves starting to appear on the rotors (nothing that affects pedal feel), so I'm sure they wear out rotors a little quicker, but totally worth it for dust reduction alone!

Any further thoughts on these? I am going to order in the next couple of days. Thanks.
