    Default The best Brake pads & Rotors?

    Hey guys the time has come to finally replace my brake pads and rotors but don't know what to go with. I have the oem brakes on there now and have lasted me 3 years... I don't drive it much but when I do it's for long distances and I'm towing a trailer with 3-4 quads. What do you guys recomend? Thanks in advance.

    Mike I think he has a 2004 Silverado, I just checked out his introduction and he said he has had it since 04'??? So we know it's a something something Silverado, I have no suggestions for rotors but I use Green stuff brake pads from Summit Racing on my Silverado and I love them.

    There are many to choose from.I'm Running Stainless Brake Company's Slotted Rotors and Hawk H.P. Ceramic Brake Pad's,for me they have been a Big Improvement over Stock.It comes down to what you are looking for in new brakes and What you are wanting to spend.

    Thanks!!! Are those green stuff brakes made from organic materials? The number one attribute I would like in my new brakes is for them to produce little to no brake dust... I can't stand brake dust. The stockers are real ly good in that department but suck every where else.

    What do you guys think of the EBC rotors? Good? Bad?

    The reason I buy the green stuff brake pads are because they have little to no brake dust, I have never had EBC before but I know they are popular because I see them sold almost everywhere. The also have what's called yellow stuff, and those give off NO brake dust but they are a lot more expensive because they are high performance brake pads. The green stuff pads are actually made for large trucks, so they would be good for trailering around stuff.
