I replaced my DRW (06 GMC) with Hawk SD pads. I liked them, certainly better than the oem pads were.

My latest is Performance Friction and I am on the heavy side also. Excellent pads.
Second choice is EBC. Most premium brands will serve you well.

I have thought about EBC but they are the most expensive too. I will look into the others suggested also.

I used ceramics on my Tundra after getting a "deal" on after market pads. They were so soft that there was always brake dust on the front wheels. Tough to remove. I am not a left foot braker. I switched back to OEM ceramic pads and problem solved. Ya gets what ya pays for!

I am a big fan of Powerstop pads and rotors. I have them on my Suburban for 30k miles as well as my DD Subaru Outback (F 10k, R 25k miles).

I like Raybestos, but make sure to get their Premium Ceramic pads.

I have the EBC Orange HD pads on my 01 RAM Sport all around and on the front of my 15 DRW.

The difference was insane on the 01 and dramatic on the 15 with only doing the fronts. Only did the fronts because the rears were not available at the time. Didn't need pads but wanted improved braking and it made more difference than another pad I have ever used. I also use the EBC Yellow on my HEAVY Mobile suites and they work great.

Ceramics are NOT designed or intended for HD use!!! If you look many of the so called ceramic pads for HD they say "Ceramic like".
