Thoughts on Mintex xtreme brake pads

Wondering if anyone is using or has used these pads. Greatly appreciate if you could share your experience with these pads. Found a good deal on them and thinking of buying them. I do not track or autocross. Just spirited street and mostly highway driving.

Great brake pads but you will be cleaning your wheels every week from the dust they create.

Thanks Jager

I don't do that much driving so that might not be that big of a deal. How are they on the rotors?

I replace the rotors (Zimmerman) when I replace the pads so I don't look too closely or measure the depth of the groves. I don't track my Boxster so I get quite a few miles on a set, although I'm almost due for another replacement, probably next spring.
