Difference between cheaper/expensive pads and rotors
Just wondering what is the difference between different pads and rotors?
Looking at rock auto they both range from approx $25 to 75 for pads and $20 to $100+ for rotors for most cars. So do the more expensive last for more kms? Any advantage of purchasing the more expensive ones?
Lots of Indy mechanics use Wagner which are usually on less expensive side than other big brands and they perform okay for most ppl.
I am not racing or tracking, just need something reliable and something that lasts longtime?
What’s the best bang for buck? I know akebono get lots of love on this forum but if something one third of akebonos price will do the same thing then why waste money?
