Pontiac Grand Am 1985-1988, High Performance Street Front Brake Pads by HAWK®. FMSI: D159. This is a set of replacement front brake pads designed for an aggressive level of street driving with more repetitive, heavy braking. While these pads are made from Ferro-Carbon that was developed for racetrack applications, their formulation has been blended to provide a more progressive feel for the street. They provide 20 to 40% more braking power without causing higher wear on rotors the way racetrack formulated pads do. Designed to the precise tolerances of factory parts for proper fit and operation, these pads are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
High Performance Street Brake Pads are designed to offer 20-40% more grip for performance vehicles that see aggressive street driving while maintaining gradual and progressive application that makes them easy to live with under normal conditions. They come designed for grip the minute you put them on your vehicle with a heat-scorched top layer to help the pads mate initially to new or worn brake rotor surfaces. Once the street pads have fully broken in, the grip they are known for is available at all times whether the brakes are cold on an icy morning or hot on a Friday night.
The High Performance Street Brake Pads are made not from ceramic materials, but a Ferro-Carbon compound consisting of iron, carbon, and titanium that yields a higher level of friction naturally. They resist heat buildup that plagues OEM pads under heavy use, so there will be no need to compensate for reduced effectiveness after brake fluid gets hot enough to boil in the lines. While the many advantages of aggressive street brake pads typically come at a higher cost, CARiD offers you the superior all-around performance of these parts with value-priced brake parts from Hawk.

I like my car now, better than every when I installed these brakes along with some sport rotors. I feel I can brake easily now and not have to worry about braking at a long distance. I can stop smoothly even going more than 100 mph. Got to say, I'm glad I purchased these brakes.
Based on a recommendation, I chose Hawk HPS. Purchased these pads as a replacement... IMHO the Hawk HPS pads stop even better than the factory pads. Brake dust on the wheels is minimal. Great upgrade from stock for any vehicle. Hawk pads have amazing performance.
Bought these pads with EBC slotted rotors for the rear of my Hummer H3. I notice a big difference in stopping power compared to stock pads and rotors. Definitely a big plus. A little pricey on the pads, but well worth it for stopping the big trucks by themselves or when pulling a trailer.
The pads fit perfectly and are easy to install. The performance of the Hawk HPS brake pads and the Power Stop rotor combination braking performance is great. I have great braking power with little brake dust.
I am very pleased with these pads. I really like the brake feel and stopping power. There is zero noise, they stop you on a dime, and they installed perfectly with my rotors. Great price for a very solid product! Thanks!
These brake pads have exceeded everything that I expected of them for street use. They work really well without any noise or dust, and I have not found any hint of fading. Hawk HPS are great pads for any situation.
I upgraded my brakes with new Hawk brake pads. They have wonderful stopping power, very little noise, and the dust is easily cleaned off the wheel. Nice response and good wear life. So to sum it up these are perfect for anyone, and a must for someone who likes to drive fast.
