Ceramic pads and stock rotors work fine.
You just may end up replacing them at the end of the life of the pads, which is easily 2-3x that of the stock pads which are absolute crap. I was getting 20K-30K miles a set, and
now I have almost 50K on the Akebono's, which still work great, and maybe 1/2 left.
