if you're looking at aftermarket rotors and pads. The auto parts store will typically give you a good, better, best type scenario when choosing pads. I typically go with the best ones only because the lower priced pads shed a lot of material and create a lot of brake dust making the wheels appear dark and stained. Rotors, I haven't noticed any significant difference for typical driving from the more expensive ones..
