: Front brakes

Which are ideal for replacement for front pads and rotors? If you have a choice to replace OEM pads and rotors which one would you pick and put down a supplier for me to. So I can buy them. I would buy OEM but for $250 for pads alone I am pretty sure there is a better choice especially since I changed it a year ago with 15000 km on them and already I have to put new ones. :hmm: And believe me its not my driving style because all my other cars and trucks I have I have replaced brakes after 80000 km on them,

Not sure if the 02's uses the ceramic pads like the 03's, but I have been very impressed with the stock pads on my truck, I used to replace the pads on my Suburbans (I had 6 of them) at 12k to 15k miles, I have 25k on my Escalade and the pads look like they will last another 10k to 15k.

Im in that situation too. I need to replace the front rotors and pads.Is there a brand differance vs material? I am definately going to get ceramic rotors.

I have an 04' Escalade with 22" MOMO STORM and I just installed these ERADI SPEED PLUS 2 rotors on the front and ERADI SPEED PLUS 1 on the rear and kept the original pads on and i was amazed of the braking performance gains i have gotten and by the way these rotors will not work with factory 17" wheels they are for larger wheels but they do have ERADI SPEED PLUS that will work with factory wheels. I purchased these from todd at www.prodyno.com (http://www.prodyno.com/) there ph# (480) 967-5550

I have had Eradispeed +1's on my Z06's and they worked great, this is a good upgrade for people with larger wheel. :)
