Got 122,XXX miles on the STOCK brake pads 02 WRX. Took a gnarly canyon run over Ukiah/Comptche Rd yesterday form Ukiah to the coast in Mendocino. Made the trip both ways in an hour exactly each time. Had the car off the ground once. Basically tore it up staying in my lane and had a blast. My point? The worn out stock brakes worked flawlessly. We exclusively run the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S on the stock 16 inch wheels. I recommend those tires to everybody. I'm going to gopro my next trip to the coast as there were some great moments out there yesterday.
