Seeing the recent posts about turning in the rear
caliper pistons had me thinking it's probably time to
replace my rear pads.

The current choices appear to be:

oem pad (pagid, pbr, etc)
Mintex red
hawk hps
hawk hp
pbr ceramic

I'm running hawk hps on the front porsche monoblocks
and figure running the same pad compound on the rear
is my first choice.

Are there any advantages to the ceramic compound pads?
