Brake pads, where to buy them?

Postby Bagpuss » Sun Dec 21, 2014 7:45 pm

As the title says really, where do you guys buy your brake pads from? My brakes have started howling whenever I use them, regardless of pressure applied, so I figure it's time to refresh the pads! An easy enough job providing I can actually find some replacement pads to put in :shock: So far I've only found pads on ebay that are suspiciously cheap (possibly fake) so they're not really ideal.

Got mine through Kevin on here (KAM RACING) - mintex 1144's.. but be warned, they dont fit. you need to guide the "ears" on the pads for them to fit better. Really good pads but mega dusty!

Yeah I did see them on that site, I just can't really afford £166 for a set of brake pads at the moment :shock: I made the mistake of getting a mortgage!

Just put standard pads in the rear.

I use standard pads in the rear of mine and I use it for motorsport without issue.

Yeah I ended up getting some ultimax pads (OEM copies) direct from EBC for about £65, not bad at all!
