Which is the one you prefer?
- New brake pads with a 30-30-30 procedure: 30 gradual stops from 30 mph with 30 seconds in between each stop for the brakes to cool. This procedure will prevent the pads from getting too hot until the resins have fully cured.

- 60-20-10 procedure is to gradually brake from 60 mph to 20 mph 10 times with moderate pedal pressure (without coming to a complete stop each time). After the last brake application, accelerate back up to 60 mph and drive for several minutes without braking so the brakes can cool.

Technology has changed.
I saw a video that saying ,these days they make pads with modern technology and you don't need no more Break the pads.Just street drive will do.Maybe that is how they do in brake shops and let you drive off.I saw the Quote on one my latest repair discussion and I remembered this.
Maybe you can tell that is true or not.
By the way I did break the pads myself.

It's better if you go with a higher priced rotor and pads
You can buy cheap one and get them replaced for free if you don't count your labor
If you are going to keep your vehicle
Get the good ones

I would follow the directions of the manufacturer of the brake pads,

And the majority or vehicle owners do not have a thought about brakes after they have been replaced.

In a safe area, apply brakes moderately from 60mph to 30mph and then drive approximately 1/2 mile to allow the brakes to cool. Repeat this procedure approximately 30 times.

After installing new pads make 6 to 10 stops from approximately 35 mph with moderate pressure. Make an additional two to three hard stops from approximately 40 to 45 mph. Do not allow the vehicle to come to a complete stop.When completed with this process, park the vehicle and allow the brakes to cool completely before driving on them again. Do not engage the parking brake until after this cooling process is compete.

Note: Hawk racing pads (Blue, Black, HT-10, HT-12) may require a different bed-in procedure. Contact your sales specialists at the Tire Rack for racing application information.
