Rolf was talking about full race pads. I take that to mean something like
Pagid Orange, Pagid Yellow, Hawk Blue, Hawk HT-14, etc. None of those pads
are suitable for street use.

As I clearly stated previously, EBC Yellowstuff and Hawk HP Plus are
suitable for street use. Hawk HP Plus do squeal at times in cold weather,
but I've never had any issues with them as of yet.

There are better pads for strictly street use, esp. if you like pads with a
strong initial bite.
