Default Rotors and pads

Prefer to order myself .. Anyone have any opinion on the best , and which size rotors etc ?
'03 GT Blue/ autostick.. 160,000KM ( That's 100,000miles for y'all South of the border ) All the options, the heated leather is a must up here in Canada, Love the solid heavy duty feel and obvious Torque.. The Turbo is strong, fast and reliable.. People that don't understand the love of a PT, probably don't deserve to.

I bought rotors from
What I likeis that the rotors are dipped in Zinc, so the hubs and inside venting doesn't rust.
You can get them plain, drilled, or drilled and slotted - all for the same price.
For pads, a name brand ceramic - Tire Rack has a good selection.

I used BrakeBest from O'Reilly's and haven't had a problem with them. No noise, brake fade, or anything. I used the ceramic pads.
