The brake setup on my '03 focus which has 97K miles:
Front: Stock calipers, stainless lines, Hawk hp+ pads, and centric rotors
Rear: Stainless lines, Centric drums, Centric shoes, and I put in new hardware kit and rear spindles when I did the rear brakes 2 yrs ago

Autoxs fine, even with sticky 225 tires. I run rota 15x7.5 wheels.

I do have a set of advance track rear disc brakes I was lucky enough to find in a pick and pull, but no need for those until I put on the big boy tires

I run whatever brake fluid is on sale at advance. I bleed the brakes at least twice a year.
