Default Brake pads, Ceramic or Semi-Metallic?

As title reads, which do you prefer?

This is very important! Most popular parts dealers will try to sell you ceramic pads, but don't by them unless your rotors can handle them!!! Otherwise you may replace brake pad dust with rotor dust! Not really, but you will wear through your rotors faster in your attempt to prohibit dust. If you still really need ceramic pads, try to buy compatible rotors when you wear out your old ones!
