    I have a 2006 Double Cab with 73000 miles. I have not had to replace the pads yet. How many miles are you guys getting on your pads? I do all on road, mostly highway driving too and fro work.

    Thanks!!

    I had to replace mine around 60,000 mi. I did a lot of stop and go driving though. That being said, you'll probably need to be changing yours fairly soon.

    If you have a good brake/alignment shop, go pay for a tire rotation and ask them how much life your brakes have left.

    Mine are not very worn at all, I think they said I had 80%+ left on the fronts and "barely noticeable" wear on the back at about 40,000 miles.

    I just had my tires rotated with the oil change on Saturday, when I was checking out, I asked how my brakes looked. The advisor told me the mechanic forgot to write it down on the ticket. I told him I would not be back.

    I do a lot of driving(work). I am averaging 45k per change thats using TOYOTA pads. I stick with them as they have been so far the longest lasting pads.

    I replaced my fronts at about 42k, I'm at 70k now and I haven't touched the rear. Lot of stop and go traffic on the front for that 42k though.

    How much pad was left? How thick were the rotors?

    I can't imagine having to replace rotors that soon unless they were heavily damaged.
