    Ok I have searched long and hard, (insert comment _ lol) trying to find a thread about aftermarket brake kits. This is the only post, with 1 reply. I have been looking around for aftermarket kit to eventually install. Stop Tech Power Brake Kit looks to be a good option. I have recently stumbled upon theseScreenshot_20170205-114816.jpg

    R1 Concepts and this is encouraging. This kit above in R1's website is priced @ $467.00. I have found this same kit on flea bay for, wait for it...... $224.00. These rotors are drilled & slotted with diamond cut technology. Coated with black zinc. I know the black will wear off, but the top hat stays black :) This also comes with ceramic pads front and rear. Let's here some thoughts on this. Please exclude the Big Brake Kits - Trd, Brembo, and R1 as I don't tow anything super heavy. I will say this, for the members who do need the big brake kit, I would urge you to look into R1's . Floating rotors, color matching, this kit looks sweet. Thanks and Salute

    Are you sure that you need new pads and rotors already? That seems like a really short life for stock brakes. How thick are your current pads and rotors? I went with a Power Stop kit myself.

    Well not as of now. I have 86k miles and only front pads have been changed. Rear have never. The oem brakes are definitely awesome on our Tundra's for sure. When I finally do though it will be something aftermarket.

    I've been happy with stoptech rotors and pads if you end up replacing them. I had hawk pads before and they were good too.
