2000 Tacoma TRD Off Road Brake Upgrade Question

Hey Gents,

First post (hope I'm in the right place) - did a quick search for the brake upgrade and didn't see anything. Point me in the right direction if you've seen it.

I've had brake issues in the past: rotors warping, poor performance. I was told by a few that the bakes could be upgraded in the 2000 tacoma TRD. I am wondering about an upgrade kit and could really use advice from anyone that has done anything like this. I hate dealerships, but I'm no mechanic. Takes me a little longer but I enjoy it.

I'm also planning a timing belt replacement and I need a front left ABS sensor.

Any help on the above like where to find info and purchase parts would be really helpful.

Thanks,

Max

Thanks guys,

I currently have stock 15" wheels. I remember someone telling me that the Tacoma wheels are expensive to replace, if I am looking for 16" replacements, what exactly should I look for? Any stock Taco wheel? or only TRD? not sure if there's a difference in quality?

Nope, rims are rims.

Whatever rim you want, that will fit the bill. You need new tires to go with it too.

Its fairly expensive to do.

the gains are marginal, and the initial investment sucks. If your tires are already toast, pick up some 16's on the cheap, and do it to it

You need at least 16'' rims.
Wheel spacers are a cheaper option.
