I know I will get lots of opinions, but that's OK. What is good for relining rocky Mountain Brakes? Looking for better than the vendors carry. Should it be metallic or non metallic? What thickness? Wire woven into it or not? Where to order from?

Let me know what you all think.

Thanks

I'm pretty happy with the "Green Gripper" lining material that I got from Chaffin's for my original AC brakes. It has brass fibers woven through it.

Whatever performs best without causing undue wear on the moving parts is the best!

I ordered some of this material in a sheet from McMaster-Carr once and used it to reline the clutch on a D5 Cat once and it worked very well.

What ever lining you get, make sure it has the brass wires running thru it. The wires help dissipate the heat. The brass is soft so should not cause undo wear on the drums.

The correct size is 1 1/2" X 3/16.
