For street-only use, don't get the MetalMasters. Get the Organics
made by the same company (Axxis, formerly Repco). I use them on
all 8 corners of both of my cars, and love them.

No scary first stop (like the MM), no dust or squeal, and mine have
40-50K and going strong.

Skip the OEM; they're overpriced junk.
