    Tires are usually around 150, and I don't know about trailer pads, every trailer I've ever worked on had drum brakes.

    I have ordered several times from them and had really good luck. Prices are great! I'm still mad at myself, a few months back they had a special on the brake assemblies for 3500lb axles, for like $26 each. That's about HALF of what I had paid mid summer (which was about half again what the local stores wanted for them). I didn't buy any more! Yes, drums are the killer... By the time you buy new drums and brake assmebly, with the bearings and everything, you can actually buy the whole axle, with brakes, assembled, for the same price!
