recommended rotors?

whats up guys, i am really thinking about getting these rotors
http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/brakes.js...t+Slotted+Rotor
they are the brembo sport slotted rotors, i think the gold finish would look good with my bronze rims, what kind of pads should i get? i was originally going to get TRD, but i went and asked carson toyota about them and they said that TRD pads are way too harsh on the rotors and thus, they dont sell them no more. well any suggestions would be great, thanks.

The TRD pads are very harsh on rotors, as well as making A LOT of dust.

Go with one of the brands I listed above.
