mintex red box need a little heat in them to reach their full potential, but too much and they overheat and turn to crap quickly, happened to me at a track day. i still like mintex red box for the street

I have Mintex Reds, and they don't squeak at all. They produce a little dust, but substantially less than stock. Overall I would recommend them.

I looked into Hawks, but for street driving I think it's overkill. If you have poor brake feel, invest in a brake fluid flush. I did with ATE Super Blue and that solved my poor braking experience alot more than replacing my pads did.

i have mintex reds and love them even though they are squeaky as hell and make a lot of dust the bite is nice and is great for street and an occasional auto x session
