    My OEM rotors were shot by 50k; they were done. Pulsating got very annoying. Pads had plenty of life left.

    I upgraded to Centric premium g3500 cast rotors and Centric posi-quiet semi-metallic pads and haven't looked back.

    Well....

    I drank the kool aid and went with the Centric setup. Same one Xtreme has in his sticky. Couldn't pass up $113 shipped.

    Thanks all!

    The stock pads on my '16 make a ton of dust. I don't know if they're different from the 1st gens or not.
    I have had a similar experience. They replaced my rotors at 12k because of a pretty bad pulsation. The new rotors were doing the same thing at 23k. I replaced the pads with Akebono and the rotors with the Centric blanks like you did. For a few thousand they have been awesome. You can even still see the original casting marks on the Centric rotors.

    Nice. Got my parts next day. Apparently the drop shipper was in my city. Lol

    Anywho, whilst doing the oil change and installing part one of the fog lights today, I snapped a few pics. My brakes seem to be doing quite well for 72k. Those centrics may be setting a while longer lol
