Hawk Performance offers a premium, high performance, ultra-low dust, low noise compound called Performance Ceramic.
Performance Ceramic is engineered to reduce brake NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness), creating a quieter performing brake pad. Furthermore, the ceramic brake pad formula has a linear friction profile that allows your ABS brake system to work more effectively. With Performance Ceramic you can expect reduced brake pad wear, lower dust output levels and a rotor-friendly brake pad.
Recommended for import domestic automobiles, luxury SUV's, sports trucks & vans.
Today's alloy wheel designs on premium vehicles has contributed to customer demand for a low dust performance brake product. Specify Hawk Performance's Performance Ceramic brake pads for your luxury car, SUV, or truck.
All Hawk Performance Performance Ceramic brake pads provide a limited lifetime warranty, ensuring products to be free of defects from manufacturer's workmanship and materials.
- Extremely quiet-engineered to reduce brake NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness)
- Increased stopping power
- Increased rotor life
- Extended pad life
- Ultra-low dust
- Stable friction output
- Ideal for import and domestic sports cars and luxury cars, sport trucks, vans and SUVs with light towing and hauling duty
Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.
How To Bed-In/Burnish Brake Pads
- After installing new brake pads, make 6-to-10 stops from approximately 30-35 MPH applying moderate pressure.
- Make an additional 2-to-3 hard stops from approximately 40-45 MPH.
- DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
- Allow at least 15 minutes for the brake system to cool down.
- After step 4 is completed, your new Hawk Performance brake pads are ready for use.

Work great with very little dust. I paired these with a set of drilled rotors and the car stops excellent!

Do not use these for the track!!! They are good for autocross like stated below, but I took these to Sebring and I had nothing but problems!

Great Pads, but not for road racing

I have had these pads installed for a little over 3 months, did some light AutoX with them and they were good, but today I did road racing - They are NOT meant for road racing. They are OK at the beginning, but then heat up and lose effectiveness. Again GREAT DD pad, just not for the track.

I have had these pads for about 1000 miles now. They seem to have finally just bed in completely to my new rotors maybe about 200 miles ago. They are very good brakes stopping is very smooth, very controllable. Now that I have these I can see how much the oem brake power varied with speed. These do seem to perform better when they heat up as in if your stopping from a 65+ to zero you can notice they require less pressure quicker than oem.Â The brake dust is a lot more tolerable. It's more of a brown dust as opposed to black. Seems easier to remove. Definitely not non-existent.Â They are very quiet. They make kind of a whirling sound when stopping at high speeds but that's probably my rotor/pad combo. I kinda like the sound anyway. At low speeds I can hear a slight, pretty much unnoticeable, Â grind. This is probably just the fact that their ceramic n they all do that. Neither of these sounds I had with the oem but not a problem at all. These also seem to jitter slightly. I'm workin on that.Â Overall the pros outweigh the cons. I would definitely recommend these.Â
