    Default which brake pads?

    My '98 I purchased a year ago needs front brakes. It has 50K miles on it. I'm going to replace all four original rotors with drilled and slotted rotors. I only drove the vette 2500 miles in the past year. My question is, what type of brake pads do I need to put on it, OE type or ceramic? or what? Thanks.

    i just did new slotted/drilled rotors all the way around and HAWK Ceramic pads, the pads are quiet and stop very good, they seem to be very good pads, a lil pricey but worth it i think.
