No more dirty wheels!

The brake dust was getting unbearable! Swapped out the stock pads with Hawk Ceramic; night and day difference! Stopping performance feels the same under light pedal force and improved under harder stops. Highly recommend the switch!

I put the ceramic pads on also and there is virtually no dust at all. It is unbelievable!!!! I do have the same light squeal that I had with factory pads just without all the stupid dust!!!!

I just installed my Hawk Ceramics this past weekend and after the bedding in process I had a ton of dust. I think maybe it was the zinc coating dust from the new Stillen drilled/slotted rotors I installed at the same time. I cleaned it all off and it seems better now! I'll know more after this weekend.

I've got about 400 miles on my ceramic pads now and the wheels continue to be dust free!

You guys keep us abreast (I always liked that word) of how these pads affect your rotors. I've heard differing opinions on this aspect of ceramics and rotor wear. Would be much appreciated!

I can hardly wait for mine to arrive. I am so tired of the dust.

There is only one model of Ceramic pad that Hawk makes but if you wanna go looking for them (you really should go to ECS Motorsports to get them, trust me, I shopped for them and no one beat his price) here are the numbers:

V8
Front HB453Z.585
Rear HB194Z.570

V6
Front HB638Z.702
Rear HB194Z.570
