Hi

I have a pretty worn set of pads on my Weinmann 605 brakes. The pads are probably original, marked "WEINMANN BREV." on one side and "S.R. 75 / 82" on the other. They have the remains of an 'X' shaped recess. My wheels have Weinmann alloy rims.

Anyone know a source for suitable replacement pads? I had a near miss buying some that were only suitable for steel rims from ebay, but can't see any others.

Cheers
JIm

Are these (from Fibrax's own online shop) of any use to you?

I recently found a set of unused ones in my 'collection'. Absolutely rock hard, probably never wear out now!

Thanks David,

Are they OK with alloy rims or do I need these?

I'd go with the ones you found - look pretty similar and are definitely for alloy wheels.

I'll order a set of the alloy marked ones and post up to let everyone know whether they're any good!

Thanks for all the help guys,
Jim
