Icon Question PBR Deluxe brake pads

Does anyone here have experience with the C5-C6 Corvette PBR brake pads?

I bought some C6 Corvette pads and what I thought were decent ceramic pads, turned out to be not such a good choice. 'Duralast GOLD'.

I was going to have my rotors turned, when upgrading my pads, and the mechanic told me to steer clear of Duralast GOLD, because they have a nasty habit of chewing up rotors. He suggested sticking either with PBR, or Quickstop.

After some searching, I was able to find some PBR Deluxe pads for a decent price, and wanted to hear from anyone else who might be running them.

Thanks for any input!

I only use Hawk HP+ (street) and DTC-60 for track days. Don't go cheap on braking components.

I've been looking at Hawks too, but they seem to get mixed reviews.

These are the Hawks that I'm also considering...

That's the ones I have. Low dust. Some that want max bite don't like them but low dust are going to be more like that. Like I said they work great for me.
