I contacted Rally Parts and asked about a big brake kit for a 2015 HB Mirage. They didnt have anything.
Does anyone know of a big brake kit for the Mirage besides going with the bigger brakes from the 2017 and up Sedan?
If I was shopping for brake pads, I would start with RockAuto.com.
I like RockAuto.com because they do a very nice job of splitting products into categories. Their prices seem to reflect - "you get what you pay for", too.
When I look up my 2017 Mirage, rockauto.com offers 15 different brake pads. Those 15 brake pads are divided into 3 categories (economy, premium, & daily driver). I like this, because I know very little about brake pads. This gives me a good reference point of what is available for a Mirage, & what I should expect to pay. Even if I pay my local mechanic to do the work, he would be open to something I suggest. He may guide me in a different direction, but having this background information helps me make a wise-decision. If not a wise decision, I feel more comfortable about it at least!
You don't have to wander to far to get Akebono pads, our OEM brake pads are made by Akebono themselves.
Apparently, Akebono makes OEM brake pads for a number of manufacturers -
I didn't realize a lot of their brake pads are built in North America.
9,000 employees worldwide & 3,500 of them are in North America.
I'm just wandering what's so special in Akebono's brake pads that would justify the high cost.
Its price is even higher than an EBC Ultimax..
Must be resellers thinking that theres low supply online of those brake pads trying to sell at a ridiculous price. Most expensive ones on Rockauto are like $33. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...brake+pad,1684
