I tow a lot, and even with trailer brakes, i never mind having to much stopping power. These have excellent reviews, did anyone every try them? here is a link to them on Tirerack.

I use the hawk LTS pads and love them. Stopping power is improved over stock and iwith virtually no fade while towing (using power slot rotors)

I couldn't let tbhis go totally with out a response although it may not be exactly the info you were looking for

Haven't replaced the brake pads yet. The biggest difference I have found especially with towing has been the replacement of my brake lines with Stainless braided lines. I was VERY unhappy with the braking prior to this upgrade. Of course then there is the junk rear leaf springs that were replaced........

Thanks! I saw the LTS pads, would consider them, but then I saw the Superduty pads, and said, if I can have more stopping power, why not... I may give them a shot...

I have the superduty pads on my Tacoma and they're excellent. Order from RaceShopper.com.

My truck has the load carrying capacity of a Civic these days so I can't say much for the towing performance, but they work great for racing.
