Hawk Performance Ceramic Pads?
 
Anyone using these pads and if so what do you think of them? Do you have any noises or brake dust? How is the stopping power with these?

Rob@WretchedMS 03-13-2014 02:54 PM

Stopping power is the same as stock.
Noises with them are not common but do occur for some.
The dust is a bit less than stock, and tends to be more yellowish than blackish, which might be good for you, lol

I have had mine on for a year and a half and night and day compared to stock and very little dust. Before my rims were a constant mess along with the side of the car. I also put the gm splash guards on!

I've had them on both my SS and ZL1 and they are great. No real loss of stopping power and a whole lot less dust!

Virtually dustless... Keeps my rims black and not brownish. Plus i have white calipers and they stay clean longer

no noise...no dust

No dust, no noise. Under normal driving conditions they perform similar to stock but if you start pushing them they will fade pretty quickly. The word "performance" shouldn't be in the name in my opinion.

They are great pads for a daily driver/show car. Like others have said, they will fade if you get aggressive with them, but they are a great street pad for those looking for a quiet and very low dust option.

Best regards,

I have had Hawk Ceramic Pads on my car and I've had Autozone gold brand on my car. I could not tell a difference in stopping power. As for brake dust, Not a huge difference after break in. As for price I regret paying the $100 for the Hawk pads, the Autozone gold were only $50.00 and have lasted longer. Just my 2 cents

How about the Hawk HP Plus club/autocross HB453N.585? How do they stack up compared to the stock pads???

Rob@WretchedMS 03-15-2014 07:56 AM

more dust, more noise, more stopping power, a lot more stopping power.
I run them on my GTO that i daily drive, i don't mind the noises sometimes and the dust, and i love the stopping power they give.

Like Rob said, there is no comparison with stock from a performance standpoint. Just be aware that they are a pretty hardcore pad intended for harder use and come with all of the downsides of that kind of pad (dust and noise).

I have these on my car. Advantage, stops better than stock, dust like stock and you won't have to use your car horn as much to get peoples attention in city areas when stopping.
