I swapped out my stock pads for Hawk ceramic pads about 25,000 miles ago. They stop great, no need to heat them up and very little dusting. Ocassionally I get a little brake squeal noise but nothing too loud.

They stop my 6600lb duramax like a champ. I'll be adding ceramic pads to the camaro as soon as the factory ones go out.
