Premium Pads and Slotted rotors will do the trick.

I know Raul at Stealth Automotive sells slotted rotors, I'm gonna have to go slotted rotors. I have brand new rotors all the way around, and the fronts have already ground down with a big gouge in them (maybe they are a year old) and maybe I haul a lot more than I think

Cryo rotors and Hawk LTS pads are the way to go for our rigs. the Cryo rotors resists fading and warpage a lot better than regular rotors. may be more expensive at first but will pay off at the end... i have almost 2 years on mine right now and they show very lil fade if any
