I need to get new pads for my fronts in my car (see sig)

The rears are Rayspestos (sp?) ceramic's that were just replaces (like 5,000 miles ago)

However, I want to do the fronts soon.

What do you recommend I use? I would like to have someing aggressive that bites hard, but they still need to function perfectly with my car (not screw up the bias or ABS)

What should I get?

Thanks!!!

i bought a set af ceramic pads yesturday at advance auto for my cam they were 31.95 i think but they are great no squeeling, no fade(it also helps that i have the supra tt rotors onthere),and most importantly cleaner rims. i'm never going back to semi-metalic pads again

I would recommend carbon metallic pads.

KVR, EBC, Hawk, and Performance Friction are all street-use carbon metallic pads. They all have bite; only differences are prices.

Anything specific to recommend? I am open to anything that will work great (but not adversly)

Thanks!

Does Tirerack.com have anything I want?

I don't mind spending the money (like $30 vs. $60), but I am not in the market to burn cash.

TRD brake pads are re-marked Performance Friction carbon metallic pads. They just slapped the "TRD" name on the box.

I purchased a set of TRD pads for my Celica for $70. I paid $35 for a set of Performance Friction carbon metallic pads for my mom's Tacoma truck. Nice difference.

I'm a personal fan of Hawk pads.
