Hello. I need to replace my brake pads . My last set was the "red stuff" from EBC . They lasted about 35K and maybe more but i think the performance is not the best so i want to try different brand. I am kinda stock between two options from Hawk . The ceramic pc or HPS Performance series . Any advice ?

I am usually the last one to say "Use the search" function, but man if you look down just a couple of posts you will see my own posts on this topic. I did some research and found that the best is OEM Pagid, but you will get the brake dust. There are mixed reviews with the Hawk HPS and thier Ceramic. Mostly that they don't have the initial "bite" that the OEM has, but you are not left with tons of brake dust.

I went with the Hawk HPS and I hope that I get the same results others like Mudman has (he has installed or about to be on his 3rd set). The ceramic have the potential to eat rotors and not be as effective when cold, but have no visually dust. Thier dust is very light.

Of course you can go OEM and use aftermarket inhibitors like the new Armor All.

Good Luck!
