    Default @Xulfiqar--US 2004 Corolla Front Brake pads for Indus 2004 Corolla

    The shapes of US Market and Indus 2004 Corollas are the same and so most of the parts are also the same.I want to get Ceramic brake pads for my 2004 Corolla from US.What do you say?They should fit as per as I know but are they better than the semi metallic brake pads in performance?Should I go for it?

    I have written your name in the thread title.I hope you dont mind.

    why are you willing to fit semi metallic pads, they dont work well in city driving conditions and they eat the brake disc very quickly.

    For the semi metallic or ceramic pads the brakes need to get very hot before they bite, in my opinion its better to use the OE brake pads front and back, the corollas here have drums in the rear.

    you have an XRS, it has 4 wheel discs and the front discs are larger than the normal CE, LE and S versions.

    I always use Toyota Brake pads.

    Arent they semi metallic too?Brakes are bad with Toyota Brake pads too in my case.

    Should I try replacing rear discs with drums? And I havent made any changes in suspension.Its all original.
