Do premium brake pads make a difference?
Premium pads can have an increase in stopping power and a decrease in brake fade. This means that braking performance will remain consistent even as the brake temperature increases due to repetitive braking. via
What type of brake pad stops best?
CERAMIC. Ceramic brake pads have excellent stopping power and disperse heat well. Ideal for most normal driving applications, they produce very little dust or noise and are long lasting. Many foreign and domestic vehicles are equipped with ceramic brake pad formulations from the factory. via
Is there a difference in brake pad quality?
Ceramic brake pads are made from material very similar to the type of ceramic used to make pottery and plates. Ceramic brake pad material, however, is denser and considerably more durable. Ceramic brake pads also have fine copper fibers embedded within them, to help increase their friction and heat conductivity. via

On average, you can expect to replace your slotted and drilled rotors between 25,000 to 35,000 miles. via
Do ceramic pads warp rotors?
TOM: As far as we know, however, ceramic pads do not prevent warping. If you misuse or overheat your brakes, rotors will still warp. It's possible that the improved heat-dissipation qualities of the ceramic pads may help prevent warping to some degree, but you're not going to be immune from warped rotors. via
