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.

The best brake pads and rotors for your car are those supplied by Volvo.

If you want high end, properly manufactured replacement parts for your car that have the SAME fit, function, durability and so forth that was designed in when the car was built buy OEM.
