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.

The Hawk HPS pads produce less dust than the stock pads and they perform better than the stock pads. The Hawk PC (Performance Ceramic) pads produce even less dust and they perform very similar to the stock pads. We sale an equal amount of either set up. Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions.

Kind regards,

I like the HPS myself for street use but if you want super low dust I would go with the PC, they are both excellent compounds.

Kind regards,

In terms of durability, minimal dust, and performance the Hawk HPS pads are some of the very best on the market. They're our best seller for brake pads.
As for dust difference between stock, like most people said, you'll see less than half. The reduction is definitely hugely noticeable, but, there's still going to be some dust.
If you're really fed up with dust to the point of wanting next to none, ceramic is certainly the way to go. The Hawk Ceramic pads are great at minimal dust and perform well, but, will wear out faster than a carbon compound pad like the HPS. Also, the Ceramics do perform well (significantly better than stock) but not as well as the HPS. They're both great set-ups that I've seen run with great results, and they're both HUGE upgrades over stock, so can't go wrong either way.
Any other questions you might have, just give me a call and I'll help you out!

Thanks,
Matt

The dust from the Hawk ceramic is reduced by 80% over stock, imo. I love mine.

+1 Price - I would suggest Maryland Speed, but since Apex chimed in I will give him props too.
