Default Whats the best pads and rotors???

I got the lifetime pads from Midas but the dam rotors are junk, https://www.gmforum.com/images/smilies/mad.gif last time I spent $225 to get all four redone. It didn't take long to get them warped again. I'm thinking of just getting my own and having the cousin put on. So I'm looking for whats the best ones to get.

i have autozone rotors on the front and advance auto rotors on the back with napa ceramics all the way around work really good even when wet everything seems to be holding up real well

I usually buy everything from O' Reilly, and have never had problems with any of their stuff.

Where abouts are ya? I'm sure if you're close enough to one of your B'Ville brethren they'd be more than willing to help you out put new stuff on the car. $225 for brake? Ouch.

I really like the new ceramic/organic polymer sold at NAPA. Way above OEM for stooping, but smooth. They are treating my rotors nice as well.

I've heard EBC Ultimax Rotors & Red Stuff Brake Pads are a good combo
