Braking Questions Again...

Okay, I think I've decided to go with the power slot rotors on my truck but I don't know what brake pads will complement the rotors the best. I know I've read posts on pads before and that I should go for pads with less metal in them and more ceramic...so what is the brake pad of choice out there for all you guys/girls? Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Re: Braking Questions Again...

Oh yeah, I'll still be using 33 x 12.50's also. Right now I have warped rotors and the $20 Raybestos pads on there and the rotors heat up fast after a couple hard stops and then braking distance flat out sucks. The stock rotors on these trucks just don't seem to be meant for anything other than small tires, I don't know though. I'm hoping the new rotors/pads will help and last a good while. I'll get my drums checked as well, maybe they aren't working too well and the front brakes are taking the brunt of all the breaking. What do you all use? I can't imagine you people pulling 35's and up are still using stock braking systems.
