Recently put Wagner metallic (semi-metallic?) pads on my GN. If I apply minimal braking pressure, they produce this annoying squeal. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do (short of going back to regular brake pads) to get rid of this. The rotors were fine, but I'll get them turned - if it will help.

Die noise, die!!

2 things may help:
After a rotor is turned it has grooves like an old record. Some sandpaper on an orbital sander with light pressure to remove the grooves can help.
Make sure the back side of the pads have the blue silicone glue (or ??) on the back of the pad to help isolate the vibration.

That's all I know of
