I'll second the Kool-Stop recomendo. Best brake pads in the world-- seriously. I have a set on my road bike-- lovely cartridge type with alloy holders and dual-compound pads. I also run Kool-Stops on my cyclocross bike and ancient mountain bike. The dual-compound work best for eliminating brake squeal. Harder black in front with softer salmon in rear.
As for rim wear? Kool-Stop touts their "Rim Friendly" formula. *shrug*
Anyway, i've used various Kool-Stops since the late 1980's. Excellent excellent brake pads.
