Oem pads vs Akebono

So its time for new breaks and rotors and it's come down to two oem pads/oem rotors or akebono pads/oem rotors. I'm mostly mixed city highway driving with off road once a month. Thought I'd pick your brains on this one.

A couple brake pad changes back I used OEM pads composed of the OEM material on the back. On the front I upgraded to ceramic pads from the OEM material. My front rotors went from perfect to grooved! Back rotors still perfect. The point is if you upgrade to ceramic you need ceramic compatible rotors. I stick with OEM material now.

The brand doesn't matter the material the pads are composed of is what is important.

i used oem, rotors w/ akebono pads once. pads dies with in a 14 months. was running 285/70/17's slimline bumper, winch and gobi rack; noted for additional weight. I switched to power stop brakes and rotors 2years later and a rear bumper with dual swing arms and I still haven't had to mess with by brakes/ rotors.

I think they might be good for stock, and preformed well, but akebono's went pretty quick for me.

Same. The ceramic not only grooved my rotors but wore out really fast.
