High Performance Brake Pads by Wilwood®. Temperature range and overall friction value are the primary considerations for pad selection. The pads must be capable of maintaining the proper amount of friction for stopping power within the temperatures that will be realized on the track during the event. Then, overall wear rate must be considered. For most asphalt and road race applications, compounds in the high temperature ranges over 1000°F range are usually necessary. Dirt track, drag race, and street performance applications usually operate at temperatures between 500° and 1000°F. Keep in mind that these are general ranges, and not absolute values.
- Light to medium braking dirt tracks
- Club sport and track day events
- Drag racing
- High performance street
Proper selection of friction pads is a critical part of a high-performance disc brake system. It is important to analyze your vehicle’s braking requirements based upon track demands and driver braking tendencies, then select a pad compound which satisfies these needs. The proper compound for you can be found through a trial and error process, or contact Wilwood’s technical department for recommendations.
As long as your pads are wearing evenly across the pad surface, the pads can be used almost down to the backing plate. Spacer plates may be added behind the pad backing plate as it wears so the caliper pistons will not have to be exposed to the abusive track dirt and grit.51.22 223.07

This is not a secret that Wilwood brakes are much better than stock. I know many street racers who choose Wilwood. As for me, I decided to replace my brake pads. I chose BP-10 series for daily driving. There was no problem to buy them on CARiD. There is a good comparison file with all information about all brake pads series. Shipping was fast! I'm very happy.4 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
