the compound of the pad seems to correlate with the finish on your rim.
red pads- raw, machined, or anodized rims
black pads- chrome rims
clear- painted rims

i had red pads on my bike, then went from a machined rim to a chrome rim and the pads were way too sticky! i switched to black Kool Stops and the brake felt much better.
