Default Duralast Gold Rotors and Duralast Gold Pads

Anybody use or had these before? Brakes haven't been changed in idk how long( brought the car from a used dealer in feb). I'm gettin squeal so i figure is replace them all. Total cost for the parts is $278.

Duralast GoldŽ brake rotors utilize a high carbon formulation to minimize noise and enhance performance. The carbon used in rotors dampens noise and dissipates heat. With Duralast GoldŽ brake rotors, you get quieter brakes without sacrificing performance. Specifically formulated for the toughest braking applications, Duralast GoldŽ brake rotors are the best choice for ensuring noise free braking. For best results, always use with Duralast GoldŽ brake pads.

High-Carbon steel to deliver maximum heat dissipation for improved braking performance.

Fully Coated for superior rust protection

Advanced material to reduce noise

Higher Carbon Specification than standard rotors

I went with some eBay rotors, usually I do a slotted style rotor and avoid the drilled ones. Too many horror stories about discs cracking. But since my truck has ebay cross dirlled and slotted rotors (cheaper than OEM at the time, 2009) and have not failed on me I went ahead and got a set for the front with pads. 109 for everything shipped.

I would say you wouldn't go wrong with the duralast rotors but not worry about spending the extra for the "GOLD" label. standard rotors and pads will work just fine. But that is IMO.

I've had Duralast Gold CMAX brakes and Gold rotors on my front for about 20k and rear for about 10k and they work well. When I bought the rears they actually had a new feature where the hub and edges come painted black to prevent rusting (I had painted the fronts myself). They've been holding up well.
