I did a lot of reading on this topic and went with OEM pads. The aftermarket brands often don't have as much material on the pad and don't last as long as the oem. I'm surprised your fronts wore out that fast. Are you sure they are really worn out? Maybe they still have some stuff left on there and it just looks like their worn?
I have about 24K on my fronts right now. Had to replace the rear last year at about 16K. I do use the rear brake a lot, and I use it quite a bit during low speed driving, so I'm not surprised.
Bought my pads from HDL.
