Brake rotors and Pads

Winter climate truck owners.............I am wondering what your using for rotors and pads that will or have been holding up well to the elements of the salt in the winter. Do the cold forged rotors withstand rust well??????


Trying to solve or at least slow down the rusty rotor issue we see in the winter climates.

I used Hawk ceramic pads and still on my factory rotors. No sqeeks, and no dust, loving the ceramics...

Ceramics have good stopping power when towing? I was looking at getting these versus the LTS to eliminate all the brake dust. Would like to make sure that they have good stopping power?

Oh yeah, they wont stop on a dime and give you back change. But they are every bit as good as factory or better.

Sounds like what I am looking for then. The weight of the loads I tow dont really require any more than the factory pads can do anyway. Thanks James, you're the first person I have seen post on 'em and it's nice to have an opinion on 'em!
