Best brakes for my money?

Looking to get some new brakes and would like some advice, I'm riding on 37" tires so put that into consideration, I'm looking to do both pads and rotors (only of the rotors look bad) pads I know are going bad even know they stop perfect, they have an annoying squeak at low stopping speed (unless it's something else) and I'm getting ALOT of brake dust

Powerslots and hawks get a lot of votes around here, but I stick with oem when it comes to brakes.

brakeperformance.com slotted and dimpled are guranteed not to warp and ceramic pads will stop the dust.

Well, I have run ceramic pads on my lexus and they do help but there are other kinds that stop better. Personally I like EBC or Hawk. I haven't bothered with rotors, better pads will make a huge difference. I have a set of "yellow stuff" pads for my truck. You always seem to get lots more brake dust when the pads are getting low.
