Quality drum brake shoes recommendations ?

I need to replace my rear drum shoes on my Yaris HB 2007. What are OEM equivalent or better brake shoes for less than Toyota price tag ? Can't really tell what's cheap and what's decent out there.

I just got the Canadian tire OE+ and im happy with the quality so far, no noise. ebrake is awesome again and was great to install. I think I paid $50 for the set. used original drums. have about 500km on them and they are still good. ive been happy overall with the Canadian tire OE+ brakes.

I do all the brake work on my vehicles and purchase cheap stuff from Rock Auto. Never had any issue and they seem to last as long as the more expensive parts I've purchased in the past. I just ordered a set of front rotors (DuraGo ~ $15.00 CAD/ea) and ceramic pads (Centric ~ $17.00 CAD/set). I did the rear brakes about a month ago and similar costs for the drums and shoes. Using the same quality of parts on my Dodge Grand Caravan, they were still in great shape after 3 years of service when the van was sold. You can pay more but my experience has been that there isn't that much to gain from doing so. Others, of course, may have had different experiences.

Rock Auto or Amazon is where I usually get the Wagner Quick Stops.

i'm at 90k on the factor drum and pad, and its about time to replace them. I'm thinking of getting Toyota parts, hoping to get 90k out of them.

I'm over 100,000. Original rear brakes.
They look thin but they look thin when new.

I replace my fronts brakes, after the dealership told me i need brakes all around. This was at 80k to 85k, the fronts looked like they could have gone 5-10k more. So I have been holding out on replacing my backs. After doing some reading it looks like everyone is getting 90-100k on there brakes. Why not stay with Toyota brake? As anyone come close or longer with aftermarket?

The reason I'm asking is because while my rear drum shoes don't look super thin, they started crumbling a little on the edges where they first wedge in the drum and last time I tried adjusting them, both sides would catch/drag on a single point of the drum rotation before I could get them tight enough to achieve the "short of a full rotation when spinning the wheel by hand" adjustment. It also makes the hand brake useless because in order to get it tight, the shoes would drag on too much on a tiny part of the rotation and make an intermittent rubbing noise when driving. Since I replaced the front brakes (rotors and pads) that where in bad shape because of stuck slider pins, it's been quiet on the road, but I feel like the rear wheels aren't braking hard enough, in part because of the excessive brake dust I get in the front and in part because of how weak the brakes are when pulling hard on the hand brake (I can still drive uphill with the hand brake all in).

Toyota shoes are pricey, about twice as much as the aftermarket ones that seems to be around $40-60$. Napa ones are $65 and they also have a premium version for $120. Canadian Tire's is $37.

I'm always resilient to use cheap brake pads mostly because of noise and pad material crumbling.

My brother bought the cheap Canadian Tire ones, so I'll see how he fares on them.

The OEM ones are good, but there are plenty of good brake brands. I used wagner quickstop for both my front and rear. They last a long time, plus the lining on new shoes isnt even that thick. Before you replace, also look at the drums on the inside if they need replacing. I used cheap durago drums from rock auto and they were still fine and painted them black.

It usually is a good idea to replace the hardware, because the pins that hold the shoes to the back plate can really rust bad depending on where you live. If yours arent that bad, you can reuse them.

In reality, any decent brand for shoes will be fine. They last a long time.

I have 192,000 on my original drums and shoes on my Ford Escape. They are at bout 50% now. Not a bad run. I am on my 4th set of rotors though, and probably 6th set of pads.

Easily the best brakes I've ever had on a vehicle too. The things stops on a dime.
