About a month ago I asked this forum to recommend brake pads for my '79 300D. You all were kind enough to follow up with ATE & Textar, along with another brand.

Today, when having my tires rotated and balanced at a national tire service center, they advised me to replace only my rear brake pads AND rotors. They said my front brake pads and rotors were just fine.

The tire center tech told me to never "turn" the rotors on the MB diesels but that it's always best to just replace them.

Does anyone agree with this suggestion?

Also, this national tire center chain uses only Raybestos brake pads and rotors.

Are the Raybestos indeed top notch brakes (and rotors), like the others initially recommended? (ATE, Textar)

Thanks in advance! :)
