The cheapest ones I can find. Dont care if they dont last as long that the best ones, it only takes a few minutes to swap them out.

I like the mid grade stuff. Quit buying lifetime when I realized they wear out and warp rotors. They work too good too much heat.

Brake pads are much cheaper than rotors, and are a lot easier to replace, too.

carbon metalic performance friction used to be the way to go. I started with these because the don't eat up your rotor and they work great plus they had a lifetime warranty from AZ. Now they don't carry a lifetime but I still get it, so when they wear I don't turn the rotors and just change pads at no expense. I am very happy with them

Akebono ceramics....

I've tried a bunch of 'em and the best I've used to date are the Akebono ProAct's ceramic pads from Tire Rack Online . They stop well, even towing a boat, and they don't blacken the front rims with brake dust. They haven't worn the rotors any worse than anything else I've used. Hell, get some new slotted rotors if you want to. The Broncos just go through front brakes a lot, I still got the original rear shoes on there.

Cool Rotors

OK. What rotors do you guys prefer. Seems like any pad, rotor combination I try only lasts 8, 9000 miles before it starts to shake a bit stopping from 60, 65. Bearings are snug. I guess thats the way it is now days.

Amazing. Use the cheapest pads you find, and then complain that your brakes only last 8000 miles.

Whatever happened to you get what you pay for?
