    I am needing to get a new set of Rotors and pads for my mustang. It is my daily driver ....any recommendations as to great brands that will not warp in a couple of months. As far as pads, someone suggested Wagner thermoquiet, is this a good brand , if so does anyone know where I can get a pair....

    thanks in advance for your reply

    Get some EBC green pads...good for the street....

    As for rotors, i would spring for the rotors in the Cobra R kit....fricking huge! I have FRPP slotted and drilled on my car, no probs here, although in the future i might step up to larger rotors...

    From experience, I can tell you that the Wagner Thermoquiet's are good, if you use the Thermoquiet pads with them (they're both ceramic and designed to work together). Personally I use the Bendix brake pads and rotors from Advance, I've had them on since the day I bought the car, no squeaks, no fade, not too much dust either, and they're not too expensive. For a daily driver setup, I'd recommend either of those two. You can invest in some Hawk HPS or EBC's later when you're not putting lots of miles on it.
