I was wondering why my brakes are sqeaking after going from high speeds tp slowing down. as soon as they reach 40 and i brake they start to squeak but this only happens after a few minutes of driveing once they warm up..
what are a good set of brake pads for no squeaking and for winter driving weather?
Does the wheel shake when u brake? If it does ur rotors are probably warped, causing the brakes to squeek. If the rotors and pads are relatively new and still squeek like mine do, u are going to have to apply some brake grease or anti- squeal compound to the back side of the pads. I replaced both rotors and pads with OEM parts and they still squeeked so this weekend i am going to put some brake grease on the back of the pads and that should take care of it.

Used to run Repco MetalMasters - stopped on a dime, but really rough on rotors. Now I run EBC GreenStuff pads from TireRack.com. Good stopping power, no noise and very little dusting on the basketweave wheels - definitely a plus.
go ahead and spend the money for ATE or Brembo rotors - stay away from the cheap ones at the ocal parts store, you'll be much happier.
