Needing Replacement Disc Brake Pads of 7,000 Lbs Axles


I have a 5th wheel trailer tandem with 7000 lbs axles. It has Titan disc brakes and I need to replace the pads. Can you please tell me if K250CP-SS or KP250CP will fit. Also my disc are 12 or 13 inches. Its hard to get an exact measurement but I lean towards 13. Thank you for your help.

The Kodiak Ceramic Brake Pads, # K250CP or # K250CP-SS, that you referenced can both be used to replace your current brake pads on your trailer's axles.

The difference between the two is the # K250CP-SS disc brake pads have stainless steel backs. The stainless steel backs will provide resistance to corrosion and rust, especially in marine applications.

The pads on both sets are made of a ceramic material the is designed to last longer than your traditional organic pads and the semi-metallic upgrade. The pads are chamfered at the end on each end of the pad material to help prevent squeaks. One set of the Kodiak pads will replace the pads on two brake assemblies or one axle.

When installing these pads, I also recommend using Loctite Disc Brake Quit Stick, # LT40300. This paste-like lubricant is applied to the back of the brake pad to provide additional dampening of vibration that causes brake squeaks.
