What type of brake pads?

Hey guys, I am considering replacing the front brake pads and would like to know what is the best type of pads to get.
It looks to me semi-metallic is probably best for truck using mostly around town and occasional towing trailer.

Alot of ppl are going to say Hawk. Well, I listened, payed up the $180, and wish I would have stayed with the OEM pads. Almost have the price and just as good. Got about 130k out of the original pads, and they werent even done.
