Which afternarket pads are equivalent to OEM

I am due to replace my OEM pads soon and I didnt realize how expensive OEM pads are. Its like $150, front and rear. I already have ss brake lines and have no complaints about my brakes. The OEM pads work great for me. I will spend the money on OEM if necessary but does anyone know which aftermarket companies carry an equivilant pad? I went to Galfer and EBC, I just dont know which one are equal to the OEM. One of our site sponsors recommended the Galfer black pads. These are GG rated, I thought the OEM were HH rated. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

$90 for the front, which is pretty good. The rear doesnt really matter, anything will work. I think I bought carbone lorraine for $30 at sportbiketrackgear.com

I think I remember someone saying that EBC were closest to OEM, but were less expensive. I don't know it it's BS or just misinformation. All I know is that they and Galfer were less expensive for my situations, and seem to have more bite. Haven't tried Vesrah yet, but plan to next time around. Braking (the company) is another player in that space. Don't know much about them though.
