Which pads would be best/work for a Tektro V-Brake system, does Kool Stop make pads for them?

Pads are not brand specific.
They are, however, type specific.

What ever replacement pads you use, keep in mind, the fact that most, if not all, wet weather specific pads are more abrasive & will wear rims faster than standard pads.

They are both brand and type specific.

That's not true, at least in the case of Kool stops, the Kool Stop salmons are for "extreme conditions" (wet, muddy), and are also the easiest on rims..........To the OP, yes, you can get Kool Stop pads for your v-brakes. If you have cartridge-type (where you remove the retainer pin, slide the old pad out, slide the new pad in, put in new pin), or the non-cartridge type, Kool-Stop makes them both. The cartridge-type will be called "cartridge pads for v-brakes", the non-cartridge type are their "thinline" pads for v-brakes, they come with the threaded post, etc. You can get them in a variety of colors, most folks prefer the salmons. The salmons are sometimes hard to find, but your LBS can order them for you if they don't have them in stock.
