Since I am replacing tires , I am thinking on replacing the brake pads too ... I checked the front ones and even thou they still work fine , they are getting thinner and I would not want to damage my rotors because these things are hugely expensive , so I will be spending a couple of dollars for the pads and will solve the problem .The rear pads have more meat on them that the front ones but still no too much more , so I guess I will do both .
The rotors , I will use some 400 sand paper to eliminate any glaze or whatever (they look good to me ) and they will be good to go .
Now , to the ever incognito question : which type of pads should I get ?
According to all the search and the reading that I have done , the ceramic pads have less dust , but these pads will eat the rotors fast because as hard as they are . Ceramic is way harder than metal , so consequently , the rotors will wear out faster ... so , I am thinking instead of Sintered pads .
Anybody agree with this ? I have not ordered them yet , so there is ample wiggle to change my mind and order something else .
Please, feel free to comment and suggest which ones to get and where ... Thanks so much
