Who makes them? Are they Performance Friction or somebody else?

How did you know I was looking for new pads in another window?

how aabout material? metallic? semi-metallic? iis that price for all 8 pads or just the front wheels?

EDIT just checked the site and saw they are for the front.....figured that would have been too good to be true

Sparks site says "TRD HP Carbon Metallic" with a little tm for trademark. Performance Friction's site says "Carbon Metallic" and has the little r for registered trade mark. Sounds like TRD is using PF again, or somebody is in trouble for misusing a trademark.

Is this good or bad? I've never heard of Performance Friction, but I've never looked at brake pads much before now.

I had TRD/PF on my Supra. They were the worst pads I have ever used on a street car. The first stop of the day was always a crap shoot to see if they'd actually stop you in time.

I've been told their full race stuff is excellent, but their street stuff isn't even in the same ballpark.

Okay, for anyone who cares, the pads are made for TRD by a company named Centric ( I hope I spelled that right). They will be here in a couple of days and the price will be the same for a couple of weeks and eventually will go up a dollar to $38.95.
