I've never had good lifespan/quality with anything but the "gold" level pads, and I prefer the ceramic ones thanks to less dust. If you're on hills a lot, vented rotors might be worthwhile, as the vents will evacuate the gasses built up by heavy braking and heat, making for more even stopping even down hill.

|boattlebot||If the pads are getting to hot, you can get brake fade and glazing. Glazing will cuase the pads to slip on the rotors.|

This may sound like a stupid question but have you noticed this on multiple hills or just the same stretch or road on a daily driven route? I only ask because someone I know had a circumstantial problem similar to this that only happened at a certain time and it ended up being related to the road said person drove on everyday to work.
If so, I'm not too sure about organic pads... That kinda sounds iffy to me.

some questions about brake rotors
first of all i put new brakes front and back on my truck,new rotors on the front also.now while driving down the road and on the highway there is no issues even coming to a stop,no vibration at all.
now coming down a hill is a different story,after getting halfway down my front end feels like i have a warped rotor.but as soon as i go back to a flat surface it stops...so if its a warped rotor wouldnt it do it every time i hit the brakes at a normal speed around 35 -55.or maybe the rotors are getting hot coming down the mountain .im kinda thinking its these organic pads i got on there but im not forsure.since its all only a month old i thought about taking the pads back and getting a better set,if that doesnt fix it ill replace both rotors under the warranty.......so what do you all think it could be
also if the pads get hot would they slip making it feel like a warped rotor
