I hate brake dust. Aren't Akebonos supposed to be a low dust, high performance pad? I've never used them or EBCs. The OEM pads on my Frontier are very low dust. I have Wagner Thermoquiets on the CR-V and they stop great but seem to get the wheels dirty fairly fast.
I have [good] experience with the Akebono ProACT ceramic pads and they produce virtually no dust. With that said, they don't stop much better than OE, so for the OP's needs he should probably try Akebono PERFORMANCE ceramic pads if he wants to go with this brand.
