Downright worth every penny
I can directly rate these on my 05 V8 4Runner vs the HPS pads I got for my 05 GX470 (200 lb. more but identical chassis, frame, etc.) These are worth the extra cost without question. HPS fades and falls flat after 4x 70-40 mph. stops - the EBC Extra Duty continued to provide the same braking feel even after 7x 60-20 mph. stops. I believe these pads are a game changer because with them, the pads are no longer the weak link. They will continue biting long after the rotors are glowing red.
