Default 100 Series Brake Pad recommendations?

Gotta replace the front brake pads on the 100. Any recommendations for something good in the mountains? Brake dust control is second to performance. I will have the rotors turned as well.

Thanks in advance

IMHO i'd stick with OEM toyota. I'm always disappointed with the aftermarket. They never seem to last and dust is outta control.

I bought oem toyota and they have been awesome. I have not noticed dust or any ill affects going down the mountains in Wyoming. Our toyota dealer uses lots of Napa parts on people's vehicles, but he said rarely are the customers satisfied with non oem pads.
We did put Napa pads and rotors on my brother in laws 100 and my wife's accord.

I've used Napa, Evolution and OEM.

I wouldn't never go with anything other than OEM again. Even with the slotted/drilled rotors, the OEM have held up the best, been the quietest and performed as good or better. JMHO

We stock the AISIN (identical manufacture as OEM Toyota) ~ 2/3rds (perhaps less) the cost. We've had fantastic luck with them.

OK I can't speak directly for the 100 series but I can't imagine there is much difference. I prefer the EBC yellow stuff truck pads personally. They make dust. They work best on my near 7000lb truck. Greens would last longer, less dust, little less bite.

I prefer them over the OEM pads. I run slotted rotors just for the record.

Were you able to find Yellows for the rear? When I redid my brakes a year or two ago, I could only find Yellows for front but not the rear. In the end I went with the Hawk LTS pads on all four corners with DBA routers.

Yes. I'll try to remember to add part numbers tonight when I get home. But I got both front and rears from Summit Racing.

I didn't find them for the 80 either. I've got Yellow's up front, and greens in the rear. I like the setup better than what I had before, but my pedal is still too mushy and it takes away some of the "bite" I'd expect from the upgraded pads and rotors.

You should run 80 series pads. The 80 guys keep buying our 100 series pads, so it's only fair.
