    My front pads may need replacing at 35,000 miles... This seems soon to some here, but not far different than my other 2 Tacomas. Depends on the terrain, load you carry (if any), and driving/ braking habits, I am sure! Only vote if you have had the front pads replaced and knew the mileage. I haven't yet, so I can't vote...

    I just hit 90k. I have not changed pads ever...

    Note: You use your brakes a lot in PR... so these have lasted more than they should've.

    I do need to change them now. They finally starting to give the sound that tells you to change them. Gonna put OEM pads. Im also gonna shave or replace the rotors and might replace brake lines. OEM lines will be likely, unless the Steel Braided ones from the Group Buy are about the same price.

    But did you change or grind the rotors when you installed the napa pads?

    My front brakes are shit plain and simple. The guy I bought the truck from changed the brakes twice after oem's wore out. The rotors are grooved and worn and the downhill braking stutters like a bitch even though the pads are fine. I have a feeling the mechanic cheaped out on the pads. So that is my next project.

    I just passed 30k and the fronts still look good. Maybe 15-20k more. Most of my driving is highway right now. When they wear out I'll throw some EBC's on and see how they do. Love em on my bikes. Hope they do well on the truck. Course' if I get bored I might just change them for GP. Sometimes I just get an itch to turn a wrench.
