Have anyone tried these Brembo brake pads for stock brakes?

Brembo makes pads for stock 86 and brz, Brembo P78018N(Rear) and Brembo P78021N(Front). Have anyone tried these out yet? They are cheaper than oem toyota brake pads so i might try them out.

If your stock brake pads need replacing, they're probably fine. They're not going to make the brakes work any better, though. Street pads are street pads.

Curious about this as well... they are very inexpensive. How good are they? I mean... they are Brembo. They must be good, right?

Good is subjective. Adequate is a better word. Fine replacement for stock if stock brakes were suiting you well enough

You keep choosing WTF options. Do you want to go on track? Neither of these choices nor OEM will cut it. Do you want street driving with a bit more bite? I suppose the stoptechs might provide it, maybe. Probably with more noise. Want to throw some pads on and forget about it? I like my PFC pads. Ultramaroon liked them too. Tons of bite cold, way more than stock, and capable of anything the stock braking system can handle at the track.

i dont know what is so wtf about my choice? They are both street pads that are about the same price as oem pads. Also i stated that i wont be tracking with them its only for DD and some hard canyon runs. I just wants pads that are better than oem for the price range of $150 for a set of front and rears. Also dont want to run track pads on the street, im not about that life lol.

What does better than OEM mean? I don't see how any of these will be better. Maybe slightly different. Maybe more grabby, possibly less dust, and definitely more noise.

I don't know what you mean by better, but Akebono pads are pretty much OEM at around $120 shipped for 4 corners.



They will all stop your car in the same distance since you will most likely be grip limited on street tires. Sport pads will give you more bite, but generally are louder, dust more, and wear your rotors down faster.

Ya i guess i should have been more specific on what i wanted, what i meant by better was just more bite, dont really care for brake dust and noise(not track pads though those are too loud). Also brake fade shouldnt really be a problem since i never got that with oem pads on the street.

Winmax W2s are a brilliant street pad. Worlds better than sock with zero drawbacks of an aggressive pad. More bite, better pedal feel, and less fade. Huge simple cheap upgrade.

I, 2nd Winmax W2. Very nice setup... maybe lil too soft for Autox or track use, if you really serious bout autox. Casual autox is def fine. Some might complain that, it's more dusty than stock... but it's very small amount compare to other brands.
