what are the best brakes for f250?

I have a 2001 f250 7.3 L diesel and pull a 10K lb. travel trailer. I need brakes soon so I would like to find the best rotor & pad combo for stopping this rig without warping the rotors within a year. I do have the trailer braking system setup and working correctly. So, can someone give me the names of a good combo.
Thanks,
jim

Performance Friction pads and rotors. If ou truly want to end warping issues and increase stopping performance this is the way to go. PFC makes their living in severe duty conditions mainly race cars, hwy patrol cars ect.

After continuous warping problems with stock rotors on my 4x4 crewcab dually, I installed the cryogenically treated/slotted ART rotors and their pads. No problems since (2 years later). I even had a high speed panic stop this summer with my slide-in camper loaded (about 12,000 GVW) and no issues with the brakes.

I personally have had excellent experience with rotors from o'reily auto parts. No warping what so ever and did not break the bank either!

cabinetmaker00,

We sell the Powerslots and HAwks here at DPPI. When you need to replace those Carbon pads get some of the Hawk LTS, they work great hot or cold!!

Powerslot rotors, and EBC Green pads. Stops very well, squeaks occasionally. Generic rotors on rear with the stock pads.
