Brakes what kind and where too buy?

Hello everyone just wondering if anyone knows where to buy brakes. I went to the tire rack and saw brembo drill and slotted for a decent price but wanted to know what should I get. I am not racing it but I think maybe some brake better than stock. Please help?

I bought mine from Amazon. They were a set of Power Stop Drilled and Slotted Rotors and ceramic pads which were on sale for $150.00 for the front and I think $130 for the rear.

I've had them on for about three months and would definitely recommend them for someone looking to upgrade their rotors. I purchased them pretty much on the fact that they provided free shipping and had some good reviews as well. Since the install I never really had any problems at all and definitely recommend them.

I bought RacingBrake slotted rotors a long time ago and they are great, still got them. I think Fig is a vendor now, but I got them direct. My rears I bought on irontoad.com or rockauto.com, can't remember.

I think you would be surprised but stock is pretty darn good. Fig sells the adapter so you use your stock caliper and pad, but use the Supra rotor, since the rotor is larger in diameter. If I were to do it again, that is what I would do.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.
