Good rotors and pads for 2013 ford Taurus?

What are some good pads and rotors for a 2013 ford taurus SEL AWD? I like the nice look of the grooved or drilled rotors but I don't want to spend any more than 300 or so for the set. Any suggestions and brand rotors and pads that will be responsive last a while and maybe cut down on brake dust?

you're welcome, I'd check prices on pads in your area. Their pads seem a bit pricey to me. The rotors are a heck of a deal though.

Yeah I area those rotors are a really good deal. Went to dealer today they said original rotors have warping and need replacing. I guess the last owner was either a last minute braker or red one foot on the brakes while driving. Some how they over heated. I'll definitely take a look around at pads. What do you recommend for quietest and smoothest? Ceramic maybe?

My preference would be ceramic. I have chrome wheels though. I like ceramic because they put out less brake dust

Tire rack also has good prices on slotted/drilled rotors and pads. Don't know how quality compares to the rotors at R1. All rotors have to meet min specs tho

Factory rotors are notorious for warping.

Most of us SHO owners have picked up the EBC's.

Yeah I notice these factory rotors are pretty cheap and thin and I love your '10 SHO. I can't believe that power! What's your 0-60 now? Must be nuts.
