God This may be too late, but the brands Hawk, Ebc, akebono, and centric StopTech are the top aftermarket/racing brake manufacturers. Of these I have had the best results with Ebc redstuff pads. Usually 60-80 for a set though.

Engineoops I've had good luck using cheep rotors and the good semi metalic or ceramic pads on cars. The hot rod rotors don't last as long as the cheep ones . so your an aggressive driver? That means you slam on the brakes at the last moment , good luck with brake life .eo

for better brake feel and performance .... braided steel brake hoses....then good pads and rotors..

rubber expands... and cars has many feet of expanding rubber brake hoses.

rangers4u Geez. Sorry I mentioned Wilwood. The OP was for AFTERMARKET suggestions, and all I did was offer 1. OP mentioned Brembo before I did Wilwood. High end chit either way.

I've found 1A auto to be good as well. And great customer service when we got a bad regulator, sent one out and told me to toss the bad one.


As mentioned, I'd probably go stock on a Camry. Toyota is pretty good at engineering those and you may have forgotten how good they were new.

nate6966 Don't waste money putting Wilwood on a Camry, please!
I would check out EBC or simply just get Napa's best.

Harkon Some cars come with weak OEM brakes. I'm not familiar with the Camery, but if the OEM brakes provided reasonably good service, I avoid spending too much extra for the higher performance, costlier replacements. Wagner Brakes offer great OEM replacements at pretty good prices. If you are looking for a performance upgrade then I think you're looking in the right direction. I find that for the couple of times you may have to do the brakes in a car, good OEM replacements provide the best balance of cost/performance/price.
