I use green,find them very good,not too bad on dust,but they are a little noiser than mintex.
red and yellow can take time to heat up.for fast road use id go with green.
hope this helps :wink:

Red 100 %

Dont really need heating up, I had on my celica.

Tried green first and just way too much brake dust.

When i get round to doing my pads it will definatly be RED STUFF!

I've got green in mine, they're a little dusty but not to bad. Really good bite for every day use as they don't need to warm up. Red would be ok on the street in a car of our hp. Yellow I wouldn't bother with, they're for the track. I may try some red next time, we fit them to 420hp Ford Falcons with Brembo brakes at work with no issues.
