Best rotors and pads for Oversized Tires

Hey guys,

I have a 2002 v6 3.0 ranger edge with 33X12.5 inch tires. I am sick of replacing warped rotors and was thinking of going the aftermarket route. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg on a pair of rotors and pads, but would just like something that will last for the long haul. Can anyone make an brand and or recommendations for these parts? Again, I'm only looking to spend around 60 per rotor and 40 per pad. I was looking at these rotors from summit

thanks!

BTW, im using oem rotors with hawk pads and it stops awesome...im on stock sized tires though. I did have powerslot rotors and hawk pads on an 05 Silverado with 35s and it was HUGE improvement over stock...but that will blow your budget with just one rotor!

get some OEM style rotors and put some good quality pads on it (Hawk, EBC) you will see more results from good high performance pads than you ever will from drilled/ dimpled/ slotted rotors. I have Hawk LTS pads on both my ranger and my F-150 and the stopping power is substantially better than OEM with zero fade and alot less dust than OEM pads as well. You should be able to get new Hawk LTS pads with some OEM style NAPA rotors for around $160
