Default Brake Pads - What to get???

I think that I read somewhere that my car came with Ceramic pads from factory... Please correct me if I am wrong.

Anyway, it is not ceramics on there now. Whatever they are, they squeal at almost every stop and coat my nice chrome rims with a thick layer of brake dust in about 3-4 days.

I was thinking of putting on the Rabestos Quiet Stop Ceramic pads, but I just wanted to check here first. Let me know!

The quiet stops is what most of us have here, they work very well.
Hope your not scoring the rotors as they can be spendy for new ones?

The rotors look perfect, and the pads look brand new. I just wanted to make sure before I clunked down the $75 for a new set of Rabestos Ceramic Quiet Stops. I also wanted to make sure that they weren't going to dust like these POS pads that are on there now.

Thanks for the advise
