The biggest concern with many drivers is how long are the brake pads going to last. Hard and abrasive brake pads tend to be able to run longer distances but the damage they cause to your rotors far outweigh the savings incurred. NiBK set of brake pads from JNBK Corporation, for example, should allow you to drive about 40,000km before they are worn out. But this is also dependent on your driving style and the current condition of your rotors.
Longest drive is not always the best choice.
