I have 90k on my factory brakes and it's time for a replacement. I'm going to keep the factory rotors. They still look perfect and don't really need to be turned. I'm turning them anyway to get a fresh surface. I was going to get OE pads again but was looking for an upgrade. The truck is stock but I have a work cap and tools on it, so it's always loaded down. I didn't know if TRD pads would be an upgrade or not. I hear a lot about Brembo rotors and Hawk pads and that seems to be the way to go. What if I'm sticking swith the stock rotors. Would the Hawk pads be a good fit or will they just chew the rotors to pieces?

I would stick with the OE. You got 90K out of them, what's wrong with that? Good idea to turn the rotors. When was the last time you changed your fluid? New pads, turned rotors and new fluid = new system?

Nothing's wrong with 90k. I'm pretty impressed. I was hoping to find something that would stop a tad better. I don't mind if I have to to the next brake job in 50k. I just didn't want to spend a ton of money upgrading everything, just wanted to upgrade the pads, if that was possible.

I am planning on turing the rotors and changing the fluid. last time it was done was about 2 years ago.

I'm looking for the same thing. I put on bigger tires recently so my stopping power has been reduced, obviously.

Options:

1. Brembo rotors and Hawk pads
2. Stock rotors and Hawk pads
3. Stock everything

Opinions?
