6" Rotors +pads

I'm in need for new rotors, i would like to pay about 100usd for both.

Since i have 6" adapter things, i think its best to stick with 6" rotors and not pay the extra like 20 for an 8" adapter.

What should i be looking at?

Also what about pads? 16usd per pair sounds ok, does it not?

Thanks

EDIT: if it matters, im running hydraulic brakes, some hayes ones, i think its the nine version.

Go Here:

You will come in just under your allotted budget and get the high end Galfer Wavy rotors in 160mm and the pads.

Galfer 160mm Wavy Rotor x2 = $95.98 USD


Are you saying that the pads are free?

No.
I'm saying that the $100 you said that you would like to pay for both is correct, and then the $16 / pair for pads is extremely close to the $16.95 that they actually cost.
When put together, your numbers equal out to $132, and mine equal out to $129.88
These numbers did not include S&H, so we'd be adding $10 for that ($10 is EXTREMELY inexpensive for shipping to Finland)

Thanks any way though
