I'm not in any way directing this at the OP, but this thread is a good opportunity to say it:
We see far too many new riders here willing (and able) to throw untold amounts of money at all sorts of anodized/powder coated/cosmetic farkles and bling, only to cheap out on something so important as brake pads, or tires. It really blows my mind.
When it comes to things like brakes, tires, or just proper maintenance in general... Cheap hurts.
