Brake Questions

I have a 10' Taco, about 44k miles and original brakes. Half of the miles are hw, but I was wondering when I should expect to replace the brakes? My last car went 90k miles and I never replaced them before I got the tacoma.

Thanks!

There are lots of things that effect brake wear:

Driving with a foot resting on the pedal, Stop and go traffic ... all shorten the life of the pads.

Driving like a sane human being they should last up to 90K or more.

I didn't change the brake pads on my wifes Toyota Sienna Van until she hit 110K miles.
