Default Brake Pads

What brake pads are you guys running and how do you like them? I need to replace mine soon, can't afford Hawk or EBC right now so I'm getting some from somewhere like Autozone

I've been running O'Reilly BrakeBest Select's for about a month and a half now (with new Raybestos rotors). No issues or anything. They do seem to grab HARD when it's rained or the rotors are wet. I broke them in after install.

Any ceramic pad will produce less dust and stop you easily. I run Bosch QuietCast BC833 on my 2005. My buddy put a set on his 2004 last year and we are both very happy with them. As I recall, they weren't terribly expensive.

Personally, I give them 5 stars.

Do you need to order the Wagner or the Bosch or could I pick them up from a place like Pep Boys, Advance Auto etc?
