Icon6 Organic, ceramic or semi-metallic?

Need to replace my brake pads on my 98 Civic and dont really know what I should go with. This is just my daily commuter car so I do 60/40 highway vs city. I think OEM are organic so I might just end up doing that route. But from what I've read ceramics are better for stopping but eat the rotors quicker. Semi-metallics are good once the heat up I think but can be noisy.

What do you perfer/recommend?


Thanks

X3. Ceramics are really nice, a bit more price but worth it. They dissipate heat well, have good wear, and produce less noticable dust.
