I purchased these brake pads in hopes of improving the performance of my brakes without a full brake kit. These pads stop very well and I was very impressed. I had read other reviews and few persons had mentioned heavy dusting and brake squeek. I figured since many had good results they must have been odd situations. I can tell you 3 things, these pads stop amazingly well. They Dust a LOT more than indicated by ratings and they are noisy. The other reviews indicate not everyone has had noise problems. I can tell you as a GM master tech they have been installed correctly on my car using brake quiet as an addition to help reduce noise. The shims on the backside seemed a bit thin to me compared to OE pads which could contribute to the noise. As long as you can live with some dust and noise, these pads are great.

For years I wanted The Hawks HPS Street as my "next" replacement pads but due to contemplating on getting rid of this car or not, I have finally decided to keep this vehicle due the mileage I have accumulated. As a car enthusiast and a MB Tech, I have more then a fair amount of knowledge on brakes. When my stock pads needed replacement, I bought F+R Rotora rotors and EBC Green pads. Performed the recommended bedding in procedure, the EBC proved to be a set of worthless pads, Brake fade after two 70 mph stops! As I understand they don t start working after the pads have been slightly warmed up, but the DON T work after they have warmed up. I had to get rid of them after 10k because I had total brake lost, Twice!!! SO, I was not going to spend $150 on brake pads again, I bought F+R pads from advance auto (WearEver Silvers) These were honestly the best pads you can buy, NO BUll! Great initial bite, Cold or Warm. NO BRAKE Fade after 3+ high speed stops. And they lasted ~70K. Impressive for $60 pads. Now my car has 120K and i know I will be running this car to the ground. After reading all the reviews from Tire Rack. I went ahead and place them thru Tire Rack, Great Service and Fast shipping!!! I put on new brembo rotors and these AWESOME HAWKS HPS Street pads. Following the bedding in procedure, and off I go. Took it gently for 2 weeks and I was anxious to test the pads out. What do you know, BRAKE FADE after ONE high speed stop, almost rear ended the car in front of me b/c I had no brakes. Since these are "High" performance Street pads, Its understanding that the braking power won t be there until they are slightly warm, but its not there in any temperature ie cold, warm, hot, etc. Its like the EBC Greens BUT Worst, In every case!!! Thought it was my rotors so luckily I kept the Wear Ever pads, and swap them out for test purpose. I Could not believe how good the Wear Ever pads were with the brembo rotors. I spent $171 for the hawk pads to find out they were junk.

I put these on my wife''s bmw because I was tired of all the dust on thstock brakes & it was due for new pads. Could not be happier ! They felt just like the stock pads & have very little dust on the front.

They appear to be a nice rotor with a two wear dimple indicators. That''s a nice little feature to have, but after about 500 miles or so these rotor leaves a severe rust on the hub. I will most likely not buy another brembo stock replacement rotor because of that, but price is great.

Take it easy at first. After about 2500 miles they were awesome! stopping power was insane. I didn''t notice much break dust either but it''s and old car and I am not that sensitve to it at this point. However, I was complety metal on metal on the pads after 17K. I have never gone through pads that quickly in my entire driving life. I had to run to the honda dealer to get some stock pads in an attempt to save my Brembos! I don''t know if it was the pads or the rotors that caused this. As a test I will stick with the stock pads for now just to see how long they last. I will assume for now that it was the pads and say that I wouldn''t buy them again. The rotors appear to be a fine choice. I will write again if I change my oppinion on any of this.

Excellent replacement rotors at an excellent price. No problems after 10,000 miles they have not warped or severely rusted. I used OEM pads from Saturn and have found this to be a good combination after trying multiple pad types on this vehicle.

My RX-7 has four-piston brakes up front, so it already has strong brakes, but the Hawk HPS/Brembo plain rotor combo makes it a stopping fiend. On the autocross course, I can brake very late into turns and experience little fade. I don''t notice much dust, but then again my wheels are very open! The pads are pretty civil for daily-driving and I can haul the car down very quickly from high speeds when panic-stopping without lockup. My only complaints are that the pads tend to start squealing after a while in heavy traffic and the initial bite could be improved a bit. Otherwise, these are great dual-duty pads.

Replaced factory brake parts w/Brembo replacement rotors and Hawk HPS pads. Initial bite when cold is slightly less than factory, but once warm, stopping power is much improved. Hawk pads seem we''ll made and include all necessary parts. Rotors look fine and matched to the car perfectly, however make sure you paint the hub before installation. After the first rain, the rotors hubs, and inside of my rims were covered in orange oxidation. All in all, good purchase.

No initial bite, stopping power was way down. These pads took forever to seat in which time that had such a sliding effect it felt dangerous to drive. Took to a track day and once they warmed up they bit better, but faded quickly.
