Supposedly both. They are bigger (have to leave the anti-squeal shims out just to get them to squeeze in there) thus they have a different wear pattern on the rotors thus the suggestion that you put on new rotors at the same time.

The 's 80 has new rotors and 80 series pads. The LX has new rotors and 100 series pads. I can't tell a difference between the two stopping power wise which IMO means the 100 series pads must be doing there thing since the LX is bigger and now weighs a heck of a lot more than the 80 . However, if the LX hadn't needed new front rotors I would have just stuck with the 80 series pads until it did.
