Hawk HPS pads, how much dust?

I can't deal with the brake dust any longer! How much less dust do the hps pads produce vs. the stock pads?

Significantly less dust, or just a little less dust?

Theres less but they do still make some. Maybe half as much, IMO.

I don't know how to quantify brake dust but it is significantly less than stock.

They make much less, but still some brake dust. I can go for about a week without significant buildup, previously was dirty after a few days.

I have Hawk pads up front and stock pads in the rear. You can easily tell the difference. The rears always seem to be covered, while the fronts are barely noticeable.

Hawk pads are definitely worth it.

They make at least 50% less brake dust for sure.
Much more time before you need to clean your wheels.

Is there a dramatic performance loss with the Hawk ceramic vs. the Hawk HPS?

How much did they set you back and where did you order them from? A vendor from the forum?

My brakes stopped squealing after my ceramic pad install. Less brake dust as well.
