Default Napa Brand Brake Pads??

I am planning on purchasing the Napa brand of Ceramic pads for my front discs.
The rears are still fine, so I'll leave them for now.

Price is good at $98. for the fronts only.

Anyone have an opinion.

I generally pay about 68 bucks for front ceramics. Hawk manufactures them.

I went to Advance Auto and paid about 60 for Raybestos Ceramics, love them.... AJ (Highlander) has Hawk ceramics on both vehicles and he is very happy as well.

I chose the Napa Ceramic pads. $85 was a lot less expensive than the Raybestos Ceramics at $140.
Also rotated the front and rear tires.
After one summer of many burnouts can you tell which one is the front and which is the rear
