Best Brakes For My SS
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi Guys,
Without changing calipers and going with oversized rotors. In your opinion what is the best brake pad and rotor replacement from OEM? Keep in mind this is for street use, no road racing or anything. Quietest, less dust etc?
Thanks Camaro5 members your the best!:headbang:

best rotor is racingbrake hands down....it looks like a brunnette in a small dress winking at you. it loses enough weight that a driver in touch with his car will notice the weight loss while cornering and accelerating...also better mpg because of reduces unsprung rotational weight if you care about.
i really like the oem pads for street. they are a dirty pad tho...but pretty gentle on rotors. people will tell you ceramic are the greatest and make no sound and no dust...its just not true...less dust but less stop as well.

If the car is used strictly for street use, I would suggest looking into the Hawk HPS pads or the Hawk Performance Ceramic Pads. The HPS pads will stop a bit better than stock, while also producing less dust and the PC pads will stop almost as well as stock while producing very minimal dust. So you kind of have a trade off.

As for rotors, the Granatelli Rotors are a great value for street use. They come slotted and dimpled with a zinc coating to prevent rust. If you are looking for a step up from them, I would suggest the DBA rotors. Although, they may be a bit "overkill" for your usage.

Ge have great pricing on these items and it only gets better if we work out a package deal. Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions. :thumb:

do you have a brake pulsation?

If you don't just replacing the pads will give you good results like Tyler said.

Hawk Ceramic is nearly no dust, zero noise, and stops about like stock
Hawk HPS dust is about the same as stock, but they stop better, every once in a while you might get a noise, but not too bad.
Hawk HP+ makes a lot of dust, you will get noise, but you will stop a lot better too.

There are other brands of pad out there, but the Hawks are by far the most popular

Thanks for the advise guys! Don't think i'm going with ceramic pads. Some swear by them other, not so much it seems.

Rob@WretchedMS 08-07-2013 03:00 PM

They are very good, if you want very low dust and stock stopping,

it's all about what you want.

Just ordered Baer Slotted Drilled Rotors and Hawk HPS pads. Hopefully they will perform well.
