Brake pad and shoes - Price and brands


My brake pads are due for replacement. And shoes should be replaced soon as well.

The shoes have lasted approx 110k and the pads approx 30k

Its a 2013 Fortuner Auto.

I wanted to know what are the good brands for the pads and shoes. Also what they cost at present. Just want standard stuff not anything fancy.

Phoned Toyota this morning for prices - almost R1100 :cursing: for Pads and almost R1200 :cursing: for shoes.

Your input will be much appreicated. I don't want to be ripped off.

I use safeline from Midas. They work 100% and a lot better priced. In the region of R350 per set.

We have a couple if Hilux”s and we have an issue when trying to fit non-OEM brake pads. The profile of the Safeline/ATE brake pads are an exact match but the holes where the two locating pins go through on either side are a fraction too small and don’t allow the pins through. After searching some five suppliers we eventually found a set where the profile was a match and the pin holes were big enough but these only lasted about 10000km before Toyota reported them to be worn again. Anyone else know of this issue?

I used Ferodo discs and ATE pads/ATE shoes but I found the ATE pads and shoes to be fairly hard. The pads were noisy and the shoes really took a very long time to bed in before the handbrake was really worth anything. Otherwise I had no fitment issues.
