Time for new pads/ caliper paint

Looking for new pads for the whip, wondering what everyone recommends. will be installing myself, looking for a decent set thats not TOO expensive. Anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

Also looking to paint the calipers yellow. Anyone have any idea where i can get high heat/heat resistant paint that will match the car? (rally yellow)

thanks!

I can help you out with your brake pads!

What type of driving do you do?

Most popular are the Hawk HPS and the Hawk Ceramics.

Pm or Call me with any questions.

Thanks

JT

I'm interested in the Hawk pads. I'm doing basic fun street driving, nothing over the top. I've got a brake wobble now, so I was going to just have the rotors turned because according to my mechanic I still have approximately 10k on my current pads. Then I re-consider thinking if I'm pulling the rotors I might was well do the pads at the same time. What are the pros and cons to of performance pads. I know they will have more bite but what about heat which is what I think warped my rotors in the first place.

How about noise? I heard these pads are noisy over the standard pad. Is this true? From descriptions of the Hawk pad's stopping capabilities: HPS is "a bit better" and their ceramics "almost as well" as stock. This doesn't sound like the price difference is worth it. I regularly wash my car, so I'm not worried about dust. Am I missing something as far as the benefit of these aftermarket brake pads?

g2 paint
oem pads are a nice pad for street...dirty tho. i am not a fan of ceramics...less dust means less stop, period. hps are pretty comparable to stock pads, if you can get them cheaper than oem go for it. there are better pads but these come with responsibilities and manners and wear on other parts that arent needed for street
