What I need:
I need a mid-range pad with good solid stopping performance with limited dust and the ability to completely clean the rim without any slow build-up of brake dust residue. I need the ability to limit the build up on the Calipers so they stay clean. I need the ability to use a wheel cleaner that will remove the dust build up as well.

What needs to be improved:
Nothing with regards to design. The only real issue is the same on any make, dusting.

Thanks for the opportunity.

I need low dust brake pads because I have bloodied more than 1 knuckle cleaning my rims. Low dust and otherwise comparable to stock and I can see myself trying a set of these pads when mine are done.

I need the reduction of dust produced from the brake pads with the improvement of stopping power and the durability of the pads.

What I need:
I want a break pad that produces less dust, but has the same, or better, performance as the stock.

What needs to be improved:
I want longer lasting pads and rotors that does not hurt the budget.

What needs to be improved:
Reduce the amount of dust given off by the brakes, and make them last a few more miles on the street.

The IS-F brakes work excellent, and completely meet my expectations, but my pretty silver wheels just look terrible within a day or less of washing. Plus, I'm not looking forward to the brake change @ 12k. But they do work well.

what i need
I would like a brake that can out match the stock brake with dust, noise and price. So that people with normal paying jobs can be able to have the performance at a price that leaves some money in there wallet. Also so that I can get away from having the dealerships overpriced stock parts and labor. It also needs to be a brake that wont wear done as fast do to the freeway miles I drive a day in stop and go traffic. also if you could recommend a sport tire with good traction in rain do to the fact I live in washington. When will the pricing on the brakes be out.

Thanks luke

In the stock sizes, take a look at the Nitto Invo and Hankook Ventus V12. Both offer great dry grip without sacrificing wet traction.


As far as prices go on the YellowStuff pads (sold in pairs), they are as follows:

LEXUS IS-F

Front - $169.29
Rear - $111.83 (currently not available)

The front pads can be purchased HERE

EBC doesn't build a rotor for the Lexus F just yet. We hope to see some in 2010 but we haven't heard anything on them at this time. We will let you know if EBC releases some.

i actually love the stock pads the way they are. i never had any squeals. it does dust a bit, but i would not give up any performance for less dusty pads.
