Smile Brake pads

I have just purchased a set of ATE Premium One ceramic disc pads for my pt cruiser today, just wanted to know if these pads are of a good quality I have never used this type before, also what brand of rotors does anybody recommend for there cruisers.

Not familiar with the pads.
Go on TireRack, I got brembo disks there.
Also, NAPA - has 2 grades of disks, buy the pricier ones - better steel.

ATE (Ah Tay) are good pads. Stock on a lot of the high end german cars, bmw, mercedes, audi/vw. I have the Wagner Thermoquiet ceramics and have had no probs, plus no brake dust.

Do ceramic pads eat your rotors faster?

I have had NAPA ceramic pads on all 3 of our PT's and have not had a problem with the discs.
