Fronts did not come with backing plates, so I reused the old ones on my previous brake pads. Previously had autozone duralast golds on my 07 accord but they tend to squeak while braking. These are quiet and brake really good. Haven't compared brake dust because it has been raining in Southern california recently. Duralast golds covered my front wheels with brake dust. Was going to replace with the warranty but was having problems with my local autozones. So switched to these and glad I did.
