I don't think you can "order 3 of each of the typical sizes" and have any luck. Either order an entire kit or disassemble and measure your needs before ordering.

My cold tools from inside also instantly got wet when I brought them out to change the tire.

I don't think the O.P. was describing a brake issue.
