    Default Torrent brake pad question

    Hello, it is finally time to replace the front pads on my wife's 08 torrent. Do I go with ceramic or semi metallic? I have always put ceramic on my truck, but I do not stand on the brake pedal like she does. I know ceramic will last longer. But, is there issues with cold stopping until they warm up? What about rotor wear? She got 60,000 out of the OE set that are on it now. (assume semi metallic). Please give me your thoughts. Thanks

    I guess that I have to pull it apart and see what it has. I doubt that it came from the factory with ceramic, but with that mileage I am not sure.
