Q: What are the best brake pads to get for my volvo c70? I am in rushhour traffic and I travel to the beach.

asked by on

I need new brake pads and rotors. I would like to get the best bang for my buck. I drive in a lot of rush hour (stop and go) traffic as well as highway traffic (I travel out of town once a month). What brand would you suggest? Also, do you know what size rotors and pads I would need for the front of my car?

My car has 92000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
