when to replace brake pads?

I have worked on every system on this truck but brakes, and never on any other vehicle. My pads look very healthy but I don't wont to work on this come December. Anything to look for, I am pretty sure I need front rotors because I get a good hop when braking fast, and I had maybe a inch of brake pad left. When I do replace the rotors and pads what brand is favored for the money. I would like to keep my chrome wheels Clean, thank you.

Yeah, your rotors are probably warped. If not warped too bad you can always have them turned. Now to the pads, if you have a inch left on the pads I would say you won't need to replace them for several years. LOL j/k
If your pads are getting close to being wore out I would go ahead and replace them. I like running OEM parts on my truck including ford pads.

Oh and you will just have to was your front rims.

Hawk pads are worth your money. You can always depend on their stopping power.
