Need new rotors and pads for the front of my 03. Where do you guys suggest for the best deal? Just looking for blank rotors and a good ceramic pad similar to stock. Nothing crazy.
Thanks

When I did my Tundra brake up-grade, I went with Napa 'premium' rotors and pads.

The difference between non-premium and premium rotors is the hub and cooling fin area are black powder coated, which hopefully will keep the rust down.

Later.

Ordered from FCP Import for $99 shiiped! Brembo Blanks and the above pads.....they had a 15% discount so it was a killer deal. Cheapest I could find was $135 before this place.

Thats it! I greatly appreciate it....hell that is confusing as all get out because where I ordered it didn't give VSC info. What a PITA LOL. Thanks I have emailed them to call me in the morning so I can pay an extra $12 for the CORRECT rotors!

So you are just doing a straight replacement and not the Tundra 199mm caliber and matching rotor upgrade? I've been researching this upgrade the past few days and really wish I had done it when I did my brakes last May (though I wasn't aware of it at the time, so I can't kick myself too much).
