    maybe the lack of response is due to the fact that you've posted this question in the road section. :wink:

    Kool-Stop salmon compound or dual compound are THE pad for aluminium alloy rims. Not sure if they come in your fitting, but they do various versions so the chances are high. Not the easiest pads to find mind. Wiggle do some, as do SJS Cycles.

    Good luck.

    The links you posted show V brake blocks - these will be no good for your old brakes. Don't think V brakes were inventd then! Please Post a pic of your Peugot brake and we can see what is then needed.

    the shoe and pad are all one piece of rubber!

    You could try these:

    Shimano compatible pads & shoes - will prob fit 90% of other brakes (worked on my Tektros)
