Brake pad recommendation



Recommended Posts

Hello all:

What brand of brake pads would you recommend for my 2007 Corolla?

It is the second time that the drums are getting warped. I was told some years ago on a different Toyota card with the same issue that I have to use "softer brake pads".

Thanks!

The drums or the discs? Seems like an issue with the discs if they're warping, not the pads. I've started using OEM pads from online dealers (huge discounts over normal dealer prices). The usual big-name brands often have economy and better lines... the economy lines are usually a false economy.  

I would think that high-performance pads would be softer (to be grabbier) but I don't know for sure...
