Brakepads that throw less dust???

Does anyone have a recommendation for brakepads that will throw less dust? I hate to complain 'cause I know everyone has the same problem, BUT I am so sick of cleaning my wheels twice a week. Thanks.

I'm using Mintex Red box, and they throw significantly less dust than my OEM pads. I'll be switching to EBC greens next week, which I hear work better than Mintex.
Well, I put in my EBC Greens last night, along with some EBC Rotors, and man, they're great so far. Initial bite is far superior to the Mintex/Zimmerman combo I had only before.
I've only got about 30 miles on them now, but overall, I'm much happier than with the Mintex.

I don't have any of that weird pedal feel that TC330 had. The pedal feels solid, and firm throughout.
One downside is that the pads stink when you bed them in. Dunno if it's the kevlar or what..
