Rig brake upgrades

I have a 2016 F-350 and my brakes are shot at 60k miles. My old GMC went 130k on the original set. Do any of you recommend any particular pad/rotor combo for a rig? Most of my research leads me to products sold by Summit. Do they only carry the best?

Re: Rig brake upgrades

I use Power Brake Extreme from Auto Anything ! Rotors are dimpled and slotted . Great brakes and rotors for a fair price

Re: Rig brake upgrades

I feel lucky if I get 30 out of ford or GM brakes.
Lmao Fords leave you stranded ....GM stays safe & dependable just wears out prematurely

Re: Rig brake upgrades

Local parts house gave me the wrong rotors. So I had to put the new $70 fuckin pads on trashed rotors so I could go to work. I ordered upgrades from Summit all the way around. I'll post brands and mileage so we can see how far they go.
