What are people using for stock brakes these days?

Its been a while since I've had to do brakes on the car, but my rear pads and rotors are getting really thin. What's everyone using now for stock replacement parts? Hawk HPS used to be pretty popular but I haven't heard anyone talk about them in a while. Plus they were known for a lot of brake dust. Anyone have opinions on Centric? Or Raybestos? I could always go Motorcraft but was thinking about something coated.

I usually use Wagner but I live in a colder climate where higher performance pads, I feel, require more heat to get them to optimal efficiency quicker. Plus I usually find the Wagner therm o-quiet don't dust too much.

I think the coated rotors are worth the few extra dollars for sure. I'd take a look on Rock Auto to see what they have for premium/coated rotors; Centric are usually real good. I bought some Raybestos rotors recently that looked great but had a minor fitment issue (on my wife's Honda)

for pads, I don't know -- there are way too many options!
