Brake Pads Replacement

Wanted to have a spare set of front brembo pads with me for track days. Chevy price is $199; list $249. Is this the price you guys are seeing?

Other sources?

Just found that the Chevy replacement pads are made in italy. I assume these are made by Brembo for Brembo.

Lio, you've been mentioning that. I probably should. I assume that means more stopping power?

Interestingly, the Parts guy at my local dealer said today that not using the matched pads can produce undesired results like that. His suggestion was to wait until the standard pad are no longer manufactured then go to a third party. I assume this is a bit extreme but I really don't want noisy brakes nor brakes that etch the rotor and cause a rotor replacement. I've lived that world on my S4 when I put on AP Racing brakes. They'd stop on a dime. Insane. But they screeched so loudly people would make scowling looks when I parked downtown.

I love the wilwood the are two piece rotors. Slotted and drilled rotors. Braking is smooth no nothing crazy in street them when the braking is necessary u can feel that bite of the 6 piston brakes....

Perfect for everyday driving and for performance use. Plus the looks. And to top it off less brake dust

Kidding me right? You won't need brake pads for quite a while. Change to better brake fluid and or add some stainless lines. That will hold you for quite a while. The 6 piston front brake upgrade is an awesome mod, all be it pricy. Many on this forum use the CTS-V. But yeah 200 bucks for some front pads is about right.

Not really. One track day and mine crumbled along the edges in my hand when I took them off to inspect. These pads don't handle late braking abuse, wrong temp range. I think I only had 2k miles on the pads and it was the first track day with them.

This is why I plan on the CTS-V upgrade! I found a great deal (less than $1800 for rotors, calipers, HPS pads, motul RBF-600, stainless lines, and pin kit/bolts) but they are temporarily out of the left calipers.

HPS won't work for the track if thats your intent. HP+ will melt too if you run hard. Using DTC-30's on the 6 pistons right now but will probably switch to 2 brake pad sets next year. The pads are murder on wheel finishes.

The Hawk DTC compounds are great for track. We run the DTC-30 with ZL1 rotors and the CTS-V calipers up front, with stock rotors and HP+ in the rear. We have a nice special going on hawk pads right now. Feel free to call, PM or email me for more details.

Best regards,

Tyler
