Need help identifying/replacing brake pads - Tektro Aquila
I am looking to replace/upgrade my Tektro Aquila brake pads with something other than the OEM part. I just removed my front brake pads and have confirmed them to be the TK-9895 pads found here: BTI | Tektro Disc brake pads, Aquila, Auriga, Draco - pair
The brake pads that I am looking to replace them with are A2Z brake pads. Is this possible? I don't know much about this stuff, so I could use some advice. The specific A2Z brake pad I'm looking at based on visual similarities is the C0323 A2Z AZ-620. Would this work? I'm hoping this helps with brake squeal (primarily) and stopping power.
They're the same pads as what's used with the Shimano BR-M525, BR-M495, BR-M475, BR-M465, BR-M416, BR-M415, BR-M375 and a few other models.
EBC makes 3 pad compounds for this pad shape.
BTI | EBC Brakes EBC disc pads, M525/515+LA/475* - gold
BTI | EBC Brakes EBC disc pads, M525/515+LA/475* - red
BTI | EBC Brakes EBC disc pads, M525/515+LA/475* - green
* Some rotors are made to only be used with resin/organic pads.
The a2z AZ-620 pads will work on your brakes.
I'm sure that other brands make pads for your brake too.
