    My 2014 Tacoma has approximately 53K miles on it and needs new front brake pads. I'm leaning towards getting OEM ones but if possible, would like to save a few bucks buying them. Where can they be purchased for the least $$$?

    Wondering if its more cost effective to go with the OME brake pads? From what I understand they last longer and the added value is that you're doing the work yourself.

    I shopped around for a while and ended up getting OEM pads and rotors from Boch Toyota Parts online store. https://toyotaparts.bochtoyotasouth.com The prices for OEM brake parts seemed pretty good to me. I picked them up in person, so not sure what the shipping cost would be. Other dealers in my area had prices that were much higher than these parts. Maybe there is a dealer in your area that has an online parts store with decent prices?

    You need to be careful if you decide to source from a dealer, be it local or online. They sell both a cheaper replacement which is ceramic and the same type your truck came with - semi-metallic - a better pad. Have read complaints on other Toyota forums about the ceramic pads - noisier and shorter life.

    Interesting, I didn't know that. How would one differentiate between the ceramic and semi-metallic pads of both claim to be "OEM"? Do different part numbers indicate different pad material or something?

    What's better depends on a few things, ie driving style, climate and towing. Not a complete list but the major ones. Haven't had an issue with ceramics the past few times I've used them.

    For a couple of other models of Toyota's - the part #s were different. Don't know what the Tacoma #s are as my '15 Tacoma pads are nowhere near being done.

    I think many on the forum have said the best rotor is StopTech sport slotted, cryo-treated;
    that works well with OEM semi-metallic Toyota pads ($50?) or OEM ceramic pads ($90?) if you want less brake dust.

    Not sure if this is true though, or which pad is better.
    Haven't tried it yet.

    Mostly stock with a few minor mods.
    Interesting. My 2014 has 130k on it and the front pads have plenty of life left in them. You live in a really hilly area? Tow a lot?

    OEM brakes in these trucks definitely last a long time. I did my 2013 at 75k. Pads still had life but rotors had scoring and both had some uneven wear due to caliper slide pins being totally rusted and stuck. Gotta keep those pins greased up so they don't rot

    Was curious about the 2 different parts numbers - 04465-04070 & 04465-AZ100. Search showed conflicting info with regard to their composition. In some cases, one would show up as semi-metallic; ceramic in another. Decided to ask the folks at McGeorge Toyota - an online seller who has been helpful in the past. Their comment follows. The parts employee who responded seems to think they're both made from the same material. What's different is the country of origin. Believe what you wish:

    The two different part numbers are 04465-04070 and 04465-AZ100. From my understanding, they are both the same formulation (though the catalog doesn't specify whether it's semi-metallic or ceramic), but the former part number is produced in Japan, and the latter part number is produced in America. We most often use the "AZ" part numbers here at our dealership in our shop, and we have found that they perform the exact same as the ones produced in Japan and shipped to the U.S.

    I was able to pickup as of this July. Not sure if they discontinued that since then or not. I do remember they charged like a $10 pick up fee which was annoying because the whole point of pickup was to not pay extra, but oh well

    go for the 04070 pads. They are more expensive but have shown to last longer and be quieter... and hell they lasted 100k on my truck, so why not stick with what works?
