Anyone have this setup on the rear brakes? My B5 is a daily driver with 40k and needs new rear pads and rotors. I want to reduce brake dust and have read conflicting posts about dust reduction with Mintex and OEM rotors. Fact or fiction?
thanks in advance.

Re: Mintex with OEM rear rotors (mozhna)

From what I have gathered, the Mintex reduce dusting by a little bit. The true source seems to be the discs themselves. A recent test seems to have proven this.
EBC's disc/pad combo is cleaner then a Redbox set of pads with aftermarket discs.

As long as you are running a new set of rotors you shouldn't have any problems with the Mintex Redbox. Now when it's time to change your fronts, check out ATE Powerdisc rotors with the Mintex pads.

Thanks for the responses. Swami -- that is exactly what I plan to do when the fronts wear down (but the pads have lots of material left, maybe another 20k).
