      What kind of driving do you do? What tires are on the car?

      There are really expensive race pads that are great for the track and terrible for a daily driver. And there are decent, inexpensive pads that are terrible at the track and perfectly fine for a daily. Just depends.

        I just run boring old semi-metallics on my street cars. They work great. They withstand heat better than the plain old organic pads, but they don't need to be warmed up to temperature to work their best like most race pads do. For a street car I generally stay away from ceramic stuff or fancy race pads.
