brake pads

Getting close to having to replace the pads. I see that most people like the EBC HH pads. Has anyone tried the pads from Sixity? How do they perform, last etc?

I have sixitys on now. very noisy. sintered pads sometimes are, but these are more than normal. scuffing and aggressively re-setting the pad's surface will usually get rid of squealing, but not w/ these. wear seems ok, but i don't have all that many non-highway miles on them. i'll go back to ebc after these.

Go with the OEM pads. Many forums agree they are the best choice.
