Brake Rotor

My brake wear sensor went off at 107,000 miles. I got the car at 58K so I assume these are the original pad/rotors.

I am thinking akebono pads which I can get a Advance Auto using the 41% coupon code. My question is that they have a few pricier rotors from Wagner and Beck/Arnley. If I can use my discount codes on there, I can get them at a good deal.

Anyone have any experience with these brands vs OE. Don't need super performance, just OE quality for regular driving?
