Looking for a recommendation for which rear pads to install on the wife’s 2015 V60 daily driver?

I have a 2010 XC60 and it is that platform and brakes. I went with Akebono pads (rotors too since I needed the full deal) and I like them. No noise and no noticeable dusting. I was worried about having more pedal pressure to do the same braking but I think that is now an old Akebono pad characteristic. I usually do OE brands but I had several customers that had used Akebono on Euro brand vehicles with good results other than some that said the pedal pressure to stop was higher.

I ended up finding a good deal on oem Volvo pads, but saves the Akebono information for future reference. Thanks again for the reply.
