Everything depends on the life the pads will see... There may be a "best"
pad for your situation but it is difficult to say which pad is the best for
Some pads play well with mud... other pads like to be hot to deliver their
best performance... still other pads work best in stop and go driving in
FWIW... tires are the usual limit in "stopping" power.... without ABS, any
brake system should be able to lock the wheels. If not, I suggest looking at
the cause for this concern first.
Look at it this way... before the advent of 4 wheel ABS systems (something
still taughtin race schools) is the concept of a "9 brake".... "1 brake"
being placing the foot on the pedal and "10 brake" being a full lock skid.
We would try to achieve a "9 brake"... just shy of locking the wheels but
delivering maximum braking. To fully understand the ramifications of this,
we need to have a basic knowledge of "tire adhesion" and how a sudden
manoeuver can turn a "9 brake" into a nightmare.
So... if you can tell us exactly what you're after, there will be a lot of
help. Even ceramic pads have a place in the options but it all depends on
what you "need".
