I have Mintex basic (red box) pads on the front of my Ford CMax. They are basic, decent quality pads. They do what it says on the box. You get OEM performance, no huge ability, but in general day to day use - fine and dandy.
They don't produce huge amounts of brake dust, but the brake dust they do produce etched alloy wheels fairly rapidly.
On performance, my CMax weighs more than just about anything Alfa have made, and it can pull down from speed staggering well if the emergency brake assist kicks in. Think motorway, sudden instant stop from full tilt, outside lane speeds. That shows the pads are up to the job.
