Pedal Pads, pedal pads, pedal pads

Anyone got recommendations for a D90(manual trans) pedal pad replacements other than the standard rubber set? I seem to wear through those in a couple of months.

I was thinking something along these lines, but I want to find a set that someone has already installed and can vouch for as far as fit and finish.

I have a cheap pilot set. Actually good quality. I don't remember if they were ALU or SS, but they haven't corroded and work well. Traction is superior. Only thing you have to get over is the holes that need to be drilled through your pedals. Once done, they are very secure.

I'll look them up on the web. I've had them on for 8 years, so I haven't got a clue what they were called. But they do have pilot written on the bottom of each pedal, otherwise I wouldn't even know that much ;-)

Those are for series or VERY early 90/110, like a 1984.

I gave trevor the sizes of the pedals I have (in classic LR fashion the size varies) and he ordered the right stuff for me.

Thank you. That would be better, And if I could, I surely would. Unfortunately, I'm in BC and my truck is in Portland, Oregon right now.

Go pedal cover less. I've got just the underlying metal on my clutch.

That's what I had when I bought my truck. A bit slippery, though, which is why I added the metal traction pads. Mine are essentially what you have found in Amazon, save that I just installed the metal pieces with proper hardware and recessed the heads for a clean look. The holes in my pedals have a bit of a convex edge to them giving fantastic grip.

These are the closest I could find to what I have. Remember, I just didn't install the rubber/plastic grip inserts in favor of all metal to metal. Mine are also a bit more squared than what is currently offered.

I have gone coverless before. But, it's a ST an and invariably gets wet in the footwell during summer storms. Super slippery with flip flops on, which is my preferred choice of footwear.

Perhaps a waterproof grip tape directly on the pedals?

I had the same issue, but why not give the grip tape a try. You can always do the pedal pads if you're not satisfied.

Skateboard deck tape. Waterproof and grippy. Going to order some this week.

I ran a very plain set of Momo Alloy pedals on my 90 for 12 years. They worked great.

A lot of them now have rubber on them, not too fond of that.
