    What's up Everyone!

    I wasnt sure which forum to post this on, and I dont recall seeing any posts similar to this in the last year so bear with me....:confused:

    I am planning to replace my brakes pretty soon, and I just wanted some input on which brake pads and rotors you guys/gals would suggest? I have an 08 TRD Sport 4x4 that I do some pretty hefty towing with, and my area gets some pretty nasty weather in the winter months.
    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks!

    forgot to mention stainless steel braided brake lines will also help with stopping power...cause the line doesn't expand like the OEM 1 does...:thumbsup:

    I've got powerslot cryo rotors and Hawk LTS pads. I do a lot of towing too and am 100% pleased with stoping power and fade resistance
