Brake Pads

What are the best brake pads I can get locally. And for around $65. I need them by next Thursday so online ordering isnt going to work.

I know I want to go with ceramic. Whats the best I can get from Napa, Autozone, Pepboys, O'reilys?

I was at Pep Boys for brakes last week, they've got ceramic pads for $55. I haven't used them, so that's about all I can tell you at this point.

I've used O'Reilly's Brake Best ceramic pads in the past and had no problems with them - heard a few people say they weren't too happy with AZ's ceramic pads.

Duralast pads from Autozone bring the suck when it comes to big tires. That's all I know.

Not sure, my family owns an independent auto parts store. I don't know which chain stores sell them. Wagner is owned by Federal Mogul so they should be real easy to find. Theres no more wearout waranty with them but they have a LIFETIME satisfactory waranty. So, say there squeeky or create to much dust and waranty them before they wear down to far.

Stay away from Duracrap.

Akebono & Bendix you can find at retail stores, and are both amazing brands.
