Akebono Euro Ceramic pads. Got mine from FCP Groton. As close to dust free as any pad I've ever used.

generally everyone agrees that the akebono euro is a superb pad..

If dust is your concern, thats the best bet..

If stopping power is your concern, Hawk HPS

Not sure of the cost of aforementioned pads but you
may want to check out the offering by NAPA.
They didn't carry anything the first pad change on wifeys car,
but on the second go round I put in the middle of the
line set from them and couln't be happier. I used to have to clean
the wheels on her 2000 every 2 weeks, no simple task
if you're familiar with those wheels. Anyway, 3 months later still
nice. Stop good too.
