Trying to search the forum for the generally regarded "best" option to replace the pads and rotors on my 2013 GC with the HD Brakes.
Rock Auto Has Centric, Raybestos and Powerstop.

My wife is the daily driver (who is maddeningly has 2 modes: accelerating or stopping) But the big concern is the ~2200lb trailer I'll be towing. (which doesn't have brakes).

What would you guys choose?

Raybestos or Power Stop or Centric should work fine. Many Shops carry Raybestos. NAPA has their own branding. Wagner receive good reviews.

Power Stop:
Raybestos: https://www.brakepartsinc.com/raybestos/

Raybestos realigns products into 3 lines: https://www.tirebusiness.com/articl...9960/raybestos-realigns-products-into-3-lines
- Raybestos Element3 Line:
- Raybestos R-Line: Their plated remanufactured calipers are nice.
- Specialty Friction and Rotors:

For corrosion resistance, go coated. Recently bought Raybestos coated front rotors for the 2016 GC (WS1-153068 / $147.96 plus tax).

For mass (important for heavy braking) stay away from drilled and slotted.

For cleanliness, go ceramic. Recently bought Raybestos Reliant front pads for the 2016 GC. (MGD1589CH / $90.98 plus tax) On sale now at https://partsavatar.ca/product/rayb...oy3Dal0mdrSlk7OCAuHzoPmMipAQPCGhoCcpUQAvD_BwE for $67.28.

Centric premium pads are very high quality and I've used them on multiple cars. That's what I purchase from RockAuto. I have not been happy with powerstop pads... tons of dust and so-so pad life.

oem parts from the dealership. Very low brake dust, basically non existent, and super quiet, and will go to 50 to 70,000 miles depending on your conditions and driving habits.

I recommend you don't let your wife drive while towing. :)
Bahaha Yes, We've already both agreed to this. which is unfortunate as our other vehicle (MY vehicle) is stick shift. (which she also can't drive) Makes travelling annoying because Ideally I'd like to go camping for 3-4 weeks and I'd go back to work during the week for 2 of them.

When I get my model 3... dreams
