Default QUick question on brake pads/fluid

Hey all-

Just have a quick question on brake pads/etc.

I need to swap my pads out and I was looking at the axxis metal master pads. I've done a search and read that they provide pretty good stopping power. Some have stated that they aren't good in cold/wet conditions. Also some have stated that they squeak while others have no noise issues.

Any updates and/or thoughts on the metal masters? I would like to order pads soon as my pads have started squeaking. I'm not going to take my car to the track any time soon, just want something better than stock to replace the stock pads. I live in Minnesota so some strong all-weather pads would be nice.

Also, I'm thinking about picking up some valvoline brake fluid any thoughts there?

Thanks in advance,

The metal masters are fine in the cold. Their stopping power is better then stock, but not as much as the ultimates or some other higher end pads.

They have been known to make a little noise under light pedal pressure. I just got used to it. They also will dust more then stock.

The valvoline fluid is good.
