    Brake + Tire Recommendations

    What set of brakes would you all recommend for my 97 Concours (Deville)? Its approaching time for me to fully replace both front and back and I am wondering what you all like and would recommend. Thanks for your input on the brakes.
    Also, not long after new brakes I shall be needing new tires, I was thinking the Hydroedge by Michelin. What do you think? What do you recommend? Thanks again.

    Hydroedge by Michelin is a GREAT tire. Like I've said before, I work in a tire shop. And I'd rate the Hydro a 9.8 on a 10 scale.

    I am a true fan of Raybestos Quiet Stop brake pads. They stop firmly, are very quiet, almost no dust, and last a long time. For me, if they are available, I will not buy anything else.

    Bought my 98 Deville a year ago, it came with Vogue Tyres (correct spelling). They're pricey but very quiet and great ride.

    There's a lot of information already available here in the archives. Brake pads, including dust, sensors and noise issues, rotors and the benefits of drilled, slotted etc, tires including traction, noise, plus-sizes etc.

    This tires are great if you live in an area that gets snow and use all season tires: LINK: PIRELLI P3000 CINTURATO M&S
    The Michelin Hydro-edge were my other option but I went with P3000 as I live in Buffalo, NY and need the extra snow traction from time to time. These were cheaper and all the reviews I've read about them are superb. Pirelli are known for great tires and are actually being considered by Cadillac to be options on future Cadillacs. They motto is "Original Equipment on the Worlds Finest". The STS-V was introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit with Pirelli tires. They have also opened factories in the US and a large one in Georgia. I believe the Cadillac LeMans Prototype was sponsored by them also.
