chrome won't get you home
Did the brake pads last Monday, I had about the thickness of a nickel left on the best one. New ones are Akebono ceramics. Lubed the guide pins with Toyota Rubber Grease and everything is now working smoothly in the braking dept. Ffwd to this morning when I scored a rather nice set of 17" OEM rims with Firestone rubbers, now that's my kind of wheel, i'm a 5 spoke type of guy haha. I'm even ready for next winter as I have a set of studded Yokohama's ready to be installed on the 16" rims and thus I'm happy to say I'm officially done with steelies.
