Need help deciding on Brake Rotors

So I am replacing the brakes on my 12. Running about a 3.5in lift and 295/65R20 tires. The original brakes are making a lot of noise and stopping bite just isnt there anymore. I am torn between the EBC Ultimax rotors and the Stoptech Cryo treated slotted rotors. I think I am going with Hawk LTS pads. What are your opinions. Please feel free to let me know

I put powerstop drilled and slotted on my old Titan. Got them as a kit with the carbon fiber pads. Drastic improvement over stock. Only downside was a very mild squeak the first time or two I lightly touched the brake pedal in the morning after rain.

I just installed the power stop kit on my tundra a couple weeks ago. Much better than stock. I went with the towing pads.

On my wifeís sequoia I did their street pads with their rotors and Iím happy with them there as well.

Is Powerstop better than Stoptech? I have heard bad things about drilled rotors. I like the Ebc idea because they have a good warranty, but stoptech has the cryo option which I hear is a good idea. Damn the decisions. Lol

I would say stoptech cryo is better but you can do powerstops all around for under $400. I donít think you can beat them for the money.

I ran ebc on my Chevy and they were very dusty. Iíve put powerstops on 4 different vehicles in the past few years. No complaints.

How was the brake noise with that setup? Dust?

No noise at all. Havenít noticed much dust. My wife would complain about her car if it was bad. My truck stays dirty, black wheels, and they have only been on a couple weeks so I canít speak for the towing pads as far as dust goes. But a carbon ceramic pad should be pretty clean.

I know the ebc yellow pads were very dirty on my Chevy.

I have had the EBC Ultimax with the Hawk Ceramic Pads on my truck for the last year and a half and have no complaints on performance. The only complaint I have is that the set of rear pads from hawk were not even when I bought them and took about 500 km to wear in. If you are concerned about warping, the EBC currently show no sign of warping any time soon where as my OEM rotors warped within a year after installation.

I bought the stop tech cryo treated slotted rotors and hawk its pads. I haven't put them on yet because I don't know how. Any chance the dealership will install them??

My experience is that some places won't install parts purchased elsewhere, but I had luck with Pep Boys installing a set of rotors and pads on my previous vehicle. I'd try there or another local shop before I'd go to a dealer.

I think everything mentioned above are very good options.

Just 2 days ago I ordered replacement pads and rotors after about 75,000 miles of which at LEAST is 1/3 towing at max (Sequoia) all over the nation.

I re-ordered the very same that I'm running now, because they have been problem free, mostly clean, obviously lasted a LONG time, and are not yet squealing...but they will any day now.

Tighty whitey:
The dealer should install it all without issue. They might have you sign something noting that you are aware that there is no warranty on the parts since you provided them.

So you like the ASP pads more that the ACT pads by Akebono? I am really torn. I loved the ACT pads on my old Tahoe, but the Tundra is heavier. So no noticeable noise or brake dust with the ASP pads? What mileage did you get out of them?

Definitely ASP over ACT....I first tried the ACT's and they were very weak requiring a lot of brake pedal pressure. Brake dust, even after towing distances is light and light colored.

I just replaced them all at 75k, but they had more meat left than I thought from my last inspection. They could have easily gone another 10....20k even.

I dont tow much, but the oversized wheel and tire combo wreak a bit of havoc on the brakes for sure. My stopping distance isnt great. Were they noisy? I think that is my biggest concern... I am OCD as hell and brake noise drives me crazy. Would you say they are more dusty than the OE pads?
