    Toyota only offers 1 type of brake pads and rotors. The Toyota brake pads are designed specifically for the dynamics of the Toyota braking system. Other pads may compromise the braking system performance, leading to accelerated rotor wear, excessive noise, vibration and pulsation. When dealing with the braking system of any vehicle, its always better to use Factory Parts.
