    Guys,

    I got 60k on my first set of pads. I am at 92k now and thinking of my shoes. I need to have a look, but what mileage is everyone seeing for their rear shoes lasting?

    Working on many tacomas and 4runners, I would regularly see the shoes go 100k+ with normal use. My personal 4runner went 165k before the shoes needed replacement. I replaced them more often from damage due to leaking axle seals than actual wear. Unless of course it was driven with the parking brake on or regular towing etc.

    The rears only do about 30% of braking duty, so the shoes do not require replacement until they are at 1.5mm-2mm.

    Wheels don't always have to be pulled, there is a little round rubber plug on the backing plate that will allow you to see how much meat is on the shoe. It is just to be meant for a quick check, and will not show you the status of the wheel cylinders, axle seals etc. you WOULD need to remove the wheel for that.

    Depends where you live cities will ware them out faster then the willie wags towing and heave loads too. My 97 had 248K and never had rear brakes and it wasn't because they were never look at, had the drums off 3 times to fix the hanging parking brake pins. Pickups are light in the back end the rear brakes don't get much use the front does most of the stopping.

    I replaced mine on my 06 @ 60k. Probably could have gone farther, but they're cheap.

    all of our toyota vehicles at work (tacoma, Siena, matrix) have exceeded 100K on rear pads. either toyota makes really good quality pads or normal braking just doesnt really wear them down.
