Ordering new Brake pad from Advance(help)

Just wondering which set yall think I should get. For the front. I have no brake upgrades. The prices range from 10-105$. I want to do the tundra brake upgrade in the future so I dont want to spend to much on pads that I will be replaceing 6months later.

If you're going to replace them in 6 months, go cheap. No need to spend a ton of money on a throw away part. If you plan on keeping the pads for a while, Autozone has a lifetime warranty on brake pads. I spent $50 on a set of ceramic pads and they're warrantied for life. If I wear out the pads, I bring them back and they give me a new set.

Thanks, but I would like to pick them up today as it is the only time I have for the next few weeks to do the install.
I will get brakes from yall when I do my tundra upgrade.

No problem. They have a cheaper option also. The ones I bought were the $50 ceramic pads. There was a semi-metallic version for around $30, same warranty. I've got a second gen so my pricing might be a little different but probably only by a buck or two.

I went with advance auto b/c you can pay online and capitalone gives 8%extra back with them. So i got these for 42+tax, minus 20$ mail-in rebate. So I'm happy!
