Since installing the larger tires and my brakes squealing like a pig I am looking for suggestions on rotors and pads or just pads. Never really looked at brakes for the taco as oem has done well but with the added weight of everything I have now I think I need more stopping power.

Dude a while back I just did a pad slap with the Hawk super duty pads. Hawk does not reccomend you use these pads unless your towing frequently. I tow somewhat often and have heavier load E tires so I gave them a try. It was a huge difference in stopping power and brake fade. Down side is as little more noise in really dusty conditions and a tad more brake dust.

I don't tow anything but with the armor and E rated tires I am not pleased with the current oem pads. Will look into the Hawks. Was also looking at the EBC yellows but just doing some research now.

Ebc makes some great rotors and pads and sell as a combi kit price is not bad either , you would be looking at ebc green stuff or yellow studs I believe

+1 for EBC. I have been swapping them onto everything I work on and have been thoroughly impressed. Pick a compound that fits your needs and they'll be great.

Side note, be sure to check Amazon's 'warehouse deals' for a bargain. Got the redstuff pads for my Golf on there for $30 a set.
