Rotors & Pads - for Trailing

Own an Armada 2009 SE 2WD with the big tow package. Interested on changing my pads and rotors, but might as well get something better, if there is. Obviously I have stock rotors and Nissan OEM pads. I trail a 5,000 lbs boat, and I was thinking about give it some additional TLC and installing better rotors and pads.

Should I stick to the OEM type rotors, or should I go to ventilated type rotors to help stop the 5,000 lbs boat behind?

If you have suggestions, I would like to hear them along with brand and part numbers, and parts cost if possible. And why are you suggesting such? Experience?

Thanks in advance!

I replaced my OEM with Power Stop Z23 Evolution. Packaged as K5822 kit. I've towed to the NC mountains and not had any issues. kj

I would advised against that kit. you do NOT want drilled rotor. it is for bling, not for performance.

front rotor is already vented. you can upgrade rear to vented, but imo isn't needed.

nothing wrong with stock rotors or off the shelf Autozone (etc) rotors. get a pad that handles heat better, usually at cost of more dust and noise.
