Yeah the autozone ones suck big time. It's true you get what you pay for. I had some axxis ultimates on before too and they were great.. stopped on a fucking dime but wore down in less than a year. :mad Got oem's now and they are great as well.

when i purchased my civic it needed brake pads so i went to pepboys (yes i know i was an idiot back then) and i purchased some brake pads that they had on sale for $12. well guess what?? they performed like $12.
next day i took them off and got a new set from the dealer.
now i'm using porterfield brake pads.

oem is good stuff. what's weird is that my TRD pads are cheaper than OEM and significantly better :evil honda needs to make mugen stuff more available here in the states :nod

stock rotors are just as good as any other rotor and rotors play a very small role in braking. So if you want new pads go for it. However I would recommend that you get your rotors turned/machined before putting the new pads on. You do this because rotors end up with bits and pieces of brake pad embedded in them (this is a good thing). So if you change to a completely different pad, then you want to clean that up as the pad compounds may not be compatible with one another.

carbotech bobcat > AEM > stock pads :)

depends if you get the metallic ones or the regular stuff (does axxis make OEM replacement pads?). metallic pads are made for racing and suck when they're not warmed up. the regular stuff, like what your OEMs are, work well on the street but suck when the temps get high from braking going into the corners. there is also carbon-metallic stuff that works well for light track duty and street use.

This is true the axxis were racing pads and did not perform well at all cold.. but warmed up they were the best stopping pads i have ever bought.. too bad they lasted less then a year.
