Default CX-7 Brakes

Hi All!
I have a 2008 CX-7 that is going to need brakes soon. I get a vibration at Freeway speeds and when braking. My Question is 2 part.
Part 1 - Best Brake Pad Brand for my CX-7
Part 2 - Resurface or Replace Rotors?

Thanks Guys!

The workshop manual says

1. Measure the thickness of the disc plate.
• If the thickness is not within the specification, replace the disc plate.
Minimum front disc plate thickness
26 mm {1.03 in}
Minimum front disc plate thickness after machining using a brake lathe on-vehicle
26.8 mm {1.06 in}

If you have vibrations the replacement is the best option. ATE set works good in my car for almost 2 years / 30kkm

Never had an issue with Centric Blank Rotors & Hawk HP Pads. I've had that combo on my CX7 for a few years. Only complaint is brake dust, but that's to be expected with the pads i have, but i'll take it over better stopping power

My brakes were replaced by the dealer before I bought it, so OEM parts are good. Braking is strong and steady.
