Front Disc Recommendations

I have a 2002 F350 SD 4WD Dually. What are some recommendations on which front disc pads I should install? I do tow a 24' car trailer.

Have read some stories about guys installing new pads and they either wear out quickly or don't have the stopping power needed. Read somewhere that had some pads recommendations, but can't find the post now.

Should I go with an OEM pad, NAPA or some other manufacturers?

Thanks for the help.

I am new to these diesel trucks. However, I have always run Hawk pads on my race cars and they are great pads.

How are they for towing? Are they noisy? Are they dirty?

I have Hawk pads and Hawk slotted rotors on all four corners. I do not tow anything but they have performed flawlessly slowing down my F250 on 38s. They are not noisy nor dirty.
