I have a 2017 Tundra CM, with two package. i seldom tow and when I do it's a very small trailer. At 60k I am surprised I haven't needed to replace my brakes. What type of mileage on average do we expect from 2018 brake pads??

my other toyotas fj and 4runner went through them much faster.

When I purchased the truck, the brakes lasted from 34k - 101k.
After that I foolishly purchased Duralast brakes.
I started getting great mileage again when I stopped using Duralast. 馃槀

Brake wear depends how the vehicle is being driven among other things. If you drive fast and/or apply the brakes hard in order to slow down faster i.e. wait until you almost get to where you need to stop and then brake really hard. Or if you do a lot of mountain driving, they may wear faster. A lot also depends how well your brakes were engineered for your particular vehicle so comparing your truck with an FJ or 4runner may not be a good criteria. I have a 2008 Tundra and didn't have to replace them until 80,000 miles.

thanks, I had service done, oil change and rotation. the technician reported my brakes at 5mm front and 6mm back, these will pass inspection and I can replace pads in a month or two

My '07 Std Cab SR5 with 4.7L got ~65k on the fronts, with10% left front and 30% left rear. I put all 4 pad sets on at that time, a 1/2 day + $45 cash investment.

I had almost 60k on the 2016 DCLB I traded in, brakes were about half worn compared to new. Replaced a rotor because it was badly warped... it had warped proly around 30k.

thanks, seems the OEM pads must be pretty good, normally I would replace with OEM, I see no reason not to, maybe a few more $$$

I had my 2011 CM in shop yesterday for belt and plugs. Mechanic said I have another 10 to 15K left on original pads. Flat country here in Louisiana and I tow boat and side by side. Truck has 103,000 and still running original battery!
Truck purchased 08/2010, best truck I have owned.

Mt 2016 DC has 60K and still on original brakes. I haven't towed much with this truck. My 2010 DC I replaced all 4 rotors and brakes around 40K but I towed a 5K pound camper a few times a year back then.

I replaced the original rear brakes on my 2016 at 111,000 miles. They still had some meat left on them. I'm doing the front brakes now at 136,000. These could have gone a LOT longer, but I wanted to get it done before the summer heat made it a more miserable job.
