Subaru WRX / WRX STI / WRX Limited / WRX STI Limited / WRX TR 2007, Performance Ceramic Brake Pads by HAWK®. These brake pads are designed to maximize all the benefits of ceramic construction to create pads that provide a high level of smooth braking power at high speeds and temperatures while producing virtually no noise, vibration, or dust. Performance Ceramic brake pads are designed to the precise tolerances of factory parts for proper fit and operation of anti-lock brakes, but provide longer pad life that is easier on brake rotors. Sold in sets for front and rear wheels. Limited lifetime warranty.
Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads are made of ceramic compounds instead of traditional metallic ones found on most vehicles as original equipment. While the benefits of ceramic brakes can be specially tuned to optimize hard racetrack braking, autobahn speed highway needs, or simply provide longer wear, Performance Ceramic brake pads are designed for use to provide higher levels of smooth, refined braking on high performance production cars that may be driven under autobahn conditions rather than on the racetrack. Ceramic pads are used in professional racing because they offer the natural ability to stay cool under the most severe conditions where 200 mile-per-hour speeds generate blistering temperatures. Heat buildup is reduced so extensively that brake fade rarely occurs due to fluid reaching boiling temperature. Ceramic brake pads are far quieter due to their higher resonant frequency undetectable by human ears, so squealing noise does not become an issue, even in the most extreme cold or warm temperatures. Performance Ceramic Brake Pads offer the extremely visible benefit of producing finer, less obtrusive dust that does not stick to most wheel surfaces – most befitting to a high-end automobile. You’ll be spared the large amounts of visible black dust that soils aluminum wheels and ultimately becomes corrosive to finishes applied on them. And because the wear factor of ceramic pads is lower than traditional metallic ones, they will last longer.
If you’re installing Hawk Performance Ceramic brake pads with new brake rotors, you’ll find down the road when the time comes to replace the pads again, rotors will still be usable enough to last through another set of brake pads. If you install them without replacing rotors, pre-chamfered pad edges will mate well against grooves and lips that have already formed as rotor surfaces wear. Instead of the pad squealing as it rubs along the lip edges, it will quietly and evenly press against the part of the rotor where it will have the most effect. To ensure the superior braking power of these pads is not compromised during bad weather conditions, they feature a slotted center groove to effectively remove water, dust, and gasses that build up normally during the braking process. While the many advantages of ceramic brake pads typically come at a high cost, CARiD offers you the superior all-around performance of these parts with value-priced brake parts from Hawk. You don’t need a high-performance vehicle to enjoy the benefits these brakes offer, and you might find your dealer charging a similar price while giving you less.

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.
