Brake Pads?

What are some really good brake pads to use? I was thinking of EBC or Mintex.

Ok, I found some Mintex on McNews and some hawks on tirerack. I also found some brembos on tirerack for the focus. $187 for a pair. I think those are the rotors I have decided on unless someone can change my mind. I don't know what I will get for the brake lines though. I guess the stainless steel ones from McNews.

alright...but a great combo is the brembo's and hawk pads...if possible, see if they have the brembo max rotors.

Ok, so the hawk pads with the brembo's I guess. No, they don't have the brembo max rotors but they have the brembo sport slotted and sport drilled. I'm gonna stay away from the drilled though b/c they wear out the pads too fast.

I bought the EBC standard rotors and Mintex pads from BAT for $109 + shipping. Best deal I found.
