Default Quick brake questions

Wife's XC-70 has 90K on it and the back brake pads are pretty much shot. Fronts are not far behind so they wore evenly. The rotors look fine, no gouges, no ridge, they are not warped, etc...

My question is this, would you just replace the pads, or both the pads and rotors? Are the Volvo rotors turnable if necessary? I have done just pads on othervehilces beofre, but I am not sure how finicky Volvo's are.

Lastly, any recommendationson a brand of pads (or rotors)

I would go with the OEM pads. As long as the rotors are still within specs just throw pads on and go.

Volvo rotors don't like to be cut.

Sounds like a plan...OEM pads it is. Rotors are fine so I'm in good shape.

Thanks Tech
