1997 Sante Fe replacing brake pads

My 1997 Sante Fe rear brakes pads have lasted 87000 miles (never had a car brakes last that long), but they now have to be replaced. My neighborhood mechanic will probably replace them with aftermarket pads, but I see Hyundai says something about "ceramic" pads. Should I be sure to get Hyundai pads when replacing?

    No. For rear pads, just get what you can afford, unless you tow. Inexpensive pads create and leave more brake dust on the wheels / suspension sometimes causing squeeks and also generally wear out faster. Sometimes they aren't as thick as oem/premium pads too. I usually opt for the mid grade stuff if I don't want the premium parts.
