Can anyone recommend good front pads for the PTT? 
I have iron discs, and looking to put new pads on front for the car.
Went to EBC for yellow stuff, but did not see pads info for the car.

Looking for good pads, with ability when needed, not necessarily because I will use it every day, but better to have and not need.

Appreciate help.

 

 

 

 

EDIT:  Compiled these for others as reference.  These are what I found that I would consider for the car.  

 

 

Looking for replacement pads for my vehicle, 2011 Panamera turbo.
After doing some research, I found some numbers which I think others can use for their maintenance purposes.  Hope it helps.

Went to Hawk & EBC web site and researched front pads for my vehicle 2011 Panamera Turbo (non PCCB).

I am considering ceramic to reduce brake dust.  

Very unusual for me to be stomping on the brakes full tilt.  So for me, it would be between ceramic and street hps 5.0 pads. 

Still, having and not needing is a nice place to be overall.  We will see by the time I have to choose.

 

 

2010-2013 Panamera turbo rotor sizes:
Front:
Size:  360mm
New thickness:  36mm
Replace thickness:  34mm
Max wear:  2mm

Rear:
Size:   350mm
New thickness:  28mm
Replace thickness:  26mm
Max wear:  2mm

 

 

 

HAWK BRAKE PADS:

Hawk Performance Ceramic brake pads:

  • Yellow/black packaging box
  • Ceramic
  • Little brake dust
  • Quieter pads
  • Less rotor wear
  • States exceptional braking - from experience, may not be better than the HPS 5.0 or street race pads though
  • When changing pads, replace the hardware kits as well.
  • You can take the numbers and do your research, should be able to get prices for front pads around $140/set.  Rears for about $130/set.

 

Hawk Performance HPS 5.0 brake pads:

  • Red/black packaging box
  • (HPS = High Performance Street)
  • Semi metallic
  • More brake dust
  • More rotor wear than with ceramic pads
  • Better stopping grip than ceramic
  • When changing pads, replace the hardware kits as well.
  • Research to see if you can get prices better than at hawk site

 

Hawk Performance StreetRace brake pads:

  • White/black packaging box
  • Semi metallic
  • More brake dust
  • More rotor wear than with ceramic pads or street
  • Suitable for consistent braking up to 1200 F temps
  • Better stopping grip than ceramic or street pads
  • When changing pads, replace the hardware kits as well
  • Research to see if you can get prices better than at hawk site

 

 


EBC BRAKE PADS:

 

EBC Yellowstuff 4000 Series Street And Track Brake Pad Set:

  • Blue packaging box
  • Yellow colored pads
  • Semi metallic
  • Include brake in coating on pads - pads bedding is quicker
  • More brake dust (states less than OEM but not true per my experience)
  • More rotor wear than with ceramic pads or street
  • Suitable for consistent braking even for racing
  • Better stopping grip than ceramic or street pads
  • Recommended for high horsepower cars
  • When changing pads, replace the hardware kits as well
  • Research to see if you can get prices better than at oem site.  Got mine for $140/front

I am more thinking spirited street.  I wont be tracking it but like the ability when desired.

Was surprised I could not find suitable pads on EBC website (expected to see options).  Or maybe I did not search properly (only discs were available).

someone else also pointed out to hawk ceramic.  Dont ceramic ones have longer stopping distance?

Less dust is nice, but stopping power is nice too.

Also, I think ceramic will use the rotors less.

All true - but the stopping power is hardly noticeable unless you are on the track.
