    Replacing my brakes soon and i'm wondering what is the most miles you got out of set of brakes and what kind do you recommend for the Tacoma. Mine is an '06 4x4 DBSB. I am only getting roughly 38,000 out of the stock and Advance auto part brakes:mudding:

    I just had my front pads replaced at 32,000 miles... (2010 Taco) my other two Tacomas (2001, 2005) also had new brakes first replaced before 40,000 miles... Some here have reported going 2 or 3 times further? Maybe they live in Kansas and always coast to a stop? Here, we have lots of stop signs and stop lights... and mountain roads... and four wheeling.

    Yah this is kind of a super subjective question. Lot of factors that come into play when talking about brake life. Alot of it depends on how you drive the truck. I had a extended cab silverado that had 95000 miles on it that still had the original brakes. My buddy on the other hand with the same truck and same type of driving had to change his at 45000 miles!!

    Yup, I would say driving style is a major factor. I have 110k miles on my truck with the original pads. About 90% highway miles. Been doing a lot of city driving lately and notice the wheels are dusty sooner.

    well the reason I asked is because my express van which I drive daily got 120,000 miles out of the brakes and I drive both the same no quick stops unless necessary

    Had one wheel off to replace a bent wheel yesterday and it looked like I still had plenty of pad left after 76,000 miles. Original pads. No warping evident when I use them either.
