Replacement brake pads for my BMW 335i?



Well it looks like i gotta change my pads on my 335. Any recommendations? I always liked the PBR deluxe pads on my older bmw's, but haven't bought new pads in a while so i don't know what's new and hot on the market! lol

Any help is appreciated.

If i gotta go oem, i'll be calling Mike at Maranello.

Not sure if you are still looking. I just bought Hawk brake pads for my M3, also stoptech pads are very good.

I ordered it from here and the price can't be beat.

Hiya, have you consider going with EBCs? They have 4 different application needs. Green, red, yellow and blue.

OEM is made by Textar, and Jurid...both can be had for under $100 per set. Not only is the brand the same, but the compound # which is more important. Don't forget to measure your rotor's depth.

Front: Size: 348x30mm
Min. Thickness: 28.4mm

Rear: SIZE: 336x22mm
Minimum Thickness: 20.4mm

Options I have had success with:

TRW
Textar
Jurid
ABT
PBR
Akebono
Hawk
Performance friction
