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 ordered these for my 06 Honda Civic and installed them along with new rotors. What attracted me to these pads is that they are race performance pads that can be used for the street. They are also ultra low dust ceramic pads. After testing them out on the road, I have to say I am pretty satisfied with them. They are quiet and my brakes feel much smoother than my stock ones. Along with good rotors, these pads will make any car perform better and are very consistent. Very pleased with these pads and would order them again. Highly recommended. Might be pricier than other pads, but it is totally worth it!Was this review helpful for you?

Appears to be a quality product, however the pads do not have the holes drilled for the separator springs which keep the pads off the rotors. You either drill your own, which I did or you go without the springs and deal with any noise and/or fuel economy issues that occur.Was this review helpful for you?
