Decent brake pads

Where do most of you guys go to get brake pads? Can you get decent ones from places like Oreilly's, or should I order some Hawks? I very rarely tow, but want something decent for the larger tires/wheels.

The last ones I got were from O'Reilly's. They were the Brake Best Select (I guess their label). They seem to be holding up fine.

When I upgraded my front end I went with Hawk super duty pads, but I have a trailer behind me several days a week. For most cars other than my Truck I use whatever is in stock at the auto store

Best bet is Ford replacements. I'm going on 60,000 miles and have 10 mm left on the front.

Plus, Motorcraft pads have a lifetime replacement warranty.

I'll check those out. I'm thinking about having my rotors turned when I put new pads on. I'd like to get a bit more use out of the stockers before I put something like a Powerslot on.
