Whats yoru reasons for getting new? how do you drive? what are you getting them for?

my rotors are from RSD 2 piece DBA but my street pads are from Autozone my track pads are HAWK blues. If you are looking for an all round rotor and pad Hawk HPS and some DBA 4000 are a good alternative. It reall depends on what you are getting them for.

just getting them for daily driving nothing too special. something that will last awhile and isn't super expensive

If it is just for DD then I would get a blank generic rotor and hawk hps pads, should be inexpensive and a decent upgrade. Also maybe consider doing new fluid and stainless lines

If it's just low key DD. I use the autozone.... Lifetime replacements.... I believe the pads were like $30.00 for front and rear. Going strong for 2nd year. I even tracked them a whole day to see how they handled. Verdict was, heated up easy after a few hard laps, but over all every bit as good as the stock STI pads. Not as good as any hawk pads, but I have pads for the track and I don't drive like an asshat, canyon runs, or anything of the sort. SO the autozones work great and cost nothing.

As far as rotors go. I would say anything, oem, stoptech, DBA, they are all high end rotors. You could try some autozone replacements. Or even some awesome Ebay specials. I am not saying they will last, or even be worth the money. You can be the test guy
