I purchased the Hawk Performance Ceramic Pads for my car shortly after I upgraded the wheels on my 2009 Kia Optima. Now, my driving style is that of an old man (just like the guy who owned my car before me). Its 60MPH on the highway, 65 if Im pushing it, and occasional blasts to triple digits. However, although these pads are never put under tremendous pressure or stress, they have performed wonderfully! For example, my average speed on on and off ramps is about 60 MPH, so with these pads, I have no worries about stopping. Just a dab, and....BOOM! DOWN TO 20 MPH! These pads are amazing (especially when tied with the slotted rotors). I would highly recommend these pads to anyone looking to improve whatever it is that they drive.
I initially bought these pads to extend my rotor life, upgrade stopping power, and decrease the amount of dust I found on my wheels. These pads have far exceeded my expectations, and as a plus, after nearly 30,000 miles of driving with them, they have about 75% left in them. I will definitely be purchasing these pads again in the future. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for an upgrade over stock.
