Honestly the OEM pads are good.

There have been several threads about break pads over the years; and OEM appears to be the best choice overall. They fit right, work well and last a long time and are not that expensive. That's what I'm going with when it's time.

I get NAPA's best pads. I had a Toyota service tech tell me that if they don't have the brake pads for someone's brake job they walk across the street to NAPA.

I tried their cheap stuff and found it not as good. I get their best pads, rotors and calipers and I'm happy with the results

OEM are fine and wear well.

I also like Akebono ceramics. They have a slightly better initial bight that I prefer but is of course subjective.

ASP 976 front pads
ASP 606 rear pads

Akebono ProAct pads. Inexpensive, work well, and do not require a break in procedure. In my experience the OEM pads tend to leave pad material on the rotors too easily causing the "warped rotor" pulsation while braking.

I like Wagner OEX Ceramics made here in the US, no downside.
Spent the last 3 weeks in the backroads twisties and switchbacks of Tennessee and with over 40k miles on them with OEM rotors they were flawless.
Saved my butt on one panic stop.

I may be mistaken, but I believe those Akebono's are the OEM pads used by Toyota. I got them for a fair price on Rock Auto. Bit more than the cheap pads, but worth the difference in price.

TRD pads and new OEM rotors. Night and day compared to OEM pads. You will thank me later.

I thought the “ACT” series were OEM replacement equivalent but I could also be mistaken.

I use original Toyota parts. I find buying them via the parts internet department are cheaper or same as buying OE. I just purchased all the new Toyota brake parts to do this winter on my 2018 4Runner ORP and can tell you the original Toyota equipment are manufactured by the following companies -

Front Brakes: Advics
Rear Brakes: Akebono
Front Rotors: Advics
Rear Rotors: Advics
