    Looking to see what is a good brand and model for rotors on a v6 taco. Going to be doing mine soon for the first time and wondering what ppl recommend and not recommend? Also brake pads and caliper recommendations too?

    Any input is appreciated!

    Some go back to stock rotors. I bought PowerStop's setup and love it so far. Grabbed mines from Rock Auto. No issues after 2 years, so far, of using.

    Do they need to be done? (are you done on pad life or have pulsating brakes?)

    I went 100k on my original rotors and pads. Replaced both with OEM, cus lets face it for the extra 100 bucks (over aftermarket rotor and pad offerings) for something KNOWN to go 100k miles given my driving style... ill gladly take it.

    I really liked the Napa Ultra Premium Rotors with the Adaptive One pads on my 07.

    The Ultra Premium rotors are coated and have a guaranteed runout of less than 0.002. D38999A1-927F-402D-9ED2-18CB5CD0275A.jpg

    I just put a front and rear set of these on my sisters 2005 Chevy Trailblazer and she’s a fan as well.

    Spend the money and go OEM. I've gone with cheaper brand rotors and drums in the past and ended up having to machine them right out of the box to stop the shaking.

    I went with brembo blank rotors and hawk HPS pads and they work well.

    OEM rotors and pads. They last 70 000 miles and work perfectly.
