so i jus recently got some dtm kreuz 10 in 19's, the 3 piece design. they are light weight and i really dont feel a difference in power or anything while driving, but i feel like my braking has gotten shittay. kinda. sometimes i feel like the brakes jus want to fail. its weird. and when i stop kinda hard it makes a "louder" sound, its hard to describe. anyways, i have about 14k miles on my car, when do brake pads need to be changed? and do you guys recc. any good ones, low dust and hard stopping? thanks.

Unfortunately you will see a decrease in braking performance with 19's. I felt it too and am actually annoyed by that more than the acceleration degradation. Time for BBK?

With 14K on the Pads...They May be worn/low and that will cause the brake pedal to be soft...Go With a decent pad..Poterfield is Great.

I Had the C32 brakes on my W203 and they were CRAP..WENT THROUGH THREE SETS OF ROTORS...in 15k Yeah I Kinda drive hard...

Inspect the pads ASAP!

yea thats what i figured, but it is annoying. i dont really feel a loss in acceleration that much, but braking is a lot more apparent. ive been downshifting to slow the car down so i dont have to brake so much.
