4 times the cost of Tektro p422's, are they that much better? Let us know how they differ as mine are due for replacement.

Yes, these are the correct pads and about the best you can get. They will fit into your current shoes. Not quite 4 times the price of Tektro's since you get 4 pads to each kit but well worth it for the much better stopping power you get.
