Brake Pads On Turbo - Oem Or Aftermarket?


Recommended Posts

I have completed a search on which brake pads to use and the consensus on the forum is Hawk Dustless, although like "GCHU" I could not find Hawk Dustless, like him I could only find the following below post that I copied/pasted. My main criteria is to retain OEM stopping power and to reduce brake dust. I have heard that Hawk pads have to heat up or be hot to be effective, at least on some of the review websites that I have read. Our OEM Pagid are great but have the brake dust issue. Are they any other brands out there that are better. Also if you could tell me where you are getting them, thanks.

I did some searching and found everyone talks about the Hawk Dustless Pads. The only Hawk Pads I found for the Cayenne from Hawk are the:

Hawk Performance Ceramic Pads

Stopping Power: 3 Stars, Low Noise: 4 Stars, Low Dust: 4 Stars

Hawk HPS Street Brake Pads

Stopping Power: 4 Stars, Low Noise: 3 Stars, Low Dust: 3 Stars

Hasw LTS Truck/SUV Pads

Stopping Power: 4 Stars, Low Noise: 3 Stars, Low Dust: 3 Stars

Has Hawk Dustless got replaced by one of the above? Anyone has experience or recommand of these pads for a heavy 5000+ pounds Cayenne? Thanks.

Tried Hawk HPS and I am very happy with the results. Excellent performance and much less dust.

Well its close to 4 years to the month since my last brake change. Last time I did both rotors and pads. I used Hawk HPS, was not to happy with the bite loss, but reallllllllly happy with low to no dust. This time around I am only going to change the pads. I was wondering if anyone has any other thoughts on Hawks Performance Ceramic vs the Hawk HPS. I was doing a search to find for myself and found this I posted 4 years ago.
