Alright, thanks for the info! Guess I'll go with blanks then. Leaning towards the same performance friction metallic ceramic pads that I had on my last car since I know them and they work well even when they get hot. I'll measure my rotors when I get a chance and see if they NEED to be replaced or not. My car is just about to turn 40k miles so we'll see.
I'll update when I finalize my order
