    Well, did about two days of reasearchin' about pads and rotors 'cause I need to replace mines. Do "light" wheelin' and don't tow much or any.

    I've already ordered some brembo blanks from tirerack....they're on their way....yay.

    I would like a soft pad to go with the brembos I've got. Don't care too much about dusts 'cause I got black rims...:) And I don't want hard pads to eat up the new rotors.

    Now, which pads???

    I've read alot about ceramics being low/no dust but also eating up rotors for breakfast. Then there's the el cheapos from the auto-link stores that I aint going to buy. Then of course there's the stocks from the factory but they are wayyy too much!!! I know about the Hawks but then again, price is too much!!!

    I looked at wheeler's centric posi-quites. Are they any good, any experiences on them?

    Also, are the Autozone friction-performance the same as TRDs? If so, I'll probably just go with those because I don't mind switching out pads instead of rotors.

    You guys are my best source for help/info, thanks.
