Brake Pads - Advice Please?

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I need some brake pad advice!

I currently have Mintex 1144 pads but they've worn out pretty quickly and unevenly and I have to wash my alloys off all the time with the dust. Killed my disks too.

Anyone have any idea what a decent alternative is? I want something ideally cheaper and perhaps longer lasting, but with similar performance (as £70 a pop every 8k is a bit high for me...) as the standard pads are trash.

8K! :o

My Mintex pads lasted nearly 40K on my Mondeo, drive slower :)

Try some Tarox pads:

Have had a few track days with it, and took the ABS offline, so it's no wonder :P
