Default New brakes

It is that time (130k mi) for a front end brake job (pads and rotors) and I figure I should replace the rear rotors as well because one of them is slightly warped (which means new rear pads as well).

I am usually extremely easy on brakes but like to have the stopping power when I need it. I was looking at a set of Brembo rotors and EBC redstuff pads to go with them. Lots of brands, lots of combinations. Fishing for opinions on separate recommendations or experiences. Big key for me is to avoid the inordinate dust of OEM pads so ceramic is one of my requirements.

Thanks for the input!

Although I haven't used them yet, I have heard a lot of great things about Akebono pads.

I'd stay away from EBC. I have the greens and not exactly happy with them. Hawk pads I have had good experience with.
