What's your recommendation for decent everyday front disc and rear drum pads. Nothing fancy as I don't AutoX. But I do drive vigorously with my ZC.

Also, same question for my wife's Toyota Sienna.

Not quite sure if any advance autos are near you charles.
I run Raybestos pads in my DDers.
Just stay clear of NJA and the run of the mill "bobs" brake pads.
Not all pads are manufactured the same.
Yeah they will cost a lil more,but its brakes we are talking about.
Hope that helps.

I have a set of Hawk HPS pads and brembo blanks on my CRX (daily driver) and they are awesome. The Hawk pads didn't cost much more than regular pads either.

No Advance Auto near here but someone must carry Raybestos. I'll check their site.

Already got Brembo blanks that aren't but a year old.

Are the PBR pads okay for daily driving. They look like they are more for racing.

I have heard nothing but good about Hawk HPS. Good for the front. I should probably go Raybestos on the rear as the drums don't do much of the normal stopping.

they are doing great for me. from what ive read they are a good street/track setup. ceramic like the oem pads were, no noise. very good feel, especially when braking from 70 to 25 off the interstate.
