+1 on this...

Brakes are CRITICAL. Don't skimp on pads....it is not worth it. I have been tracking for 12 years now. I have tried many many brands of pads over the years. What have a I learned? You get what you pay for with brake pads.

Yeah, the RS19's are expensive, but I found them to be second to none in feel, braking friction/grip, heat/fade resistance, AND wear.

They will last a LONG LONG time and are friendly to the rotors. A great pad when you consider all things. Although expensive, the overall bang for the buck is well worth it. Just IMHO and my experience. I am going to stick with them.

EDIT: PF pads are one of the pads I did not try in my years.....they are one of the only other pads I heard wonderful things about. I found Pagids and loved them, so I stuck with them.
