    Will It Fit Your Vehicle?


    HPS - High Performance Street disc brake pads are world renowned for increasing stopping power on your street legal vehicle. Increasing the performance of your vehicles braking system is easy when you choose Hawk Performance's HPS braking compound. This unique Ferro-Carbon formula was developed for street performance using the safety and quality of Aerospace and Motorsports severe-duty friction technology.

    The High Performance Street compound offers a higher coefficient of friction over stock brake pads and can provide you 20-40% more stopping power and higher resistance to brake fade than most standard replacement pads. Less fade means you will have a highly durable brake pad with less brake dust.

    All Hawk Performance High Performance Street brake pads provide a limited lifetime warranty, ensuring products to be free of defects from manufacturer's workmanship and materials.


    Hawk Performance burnishes its High Performance Street brake pads as a final step in the factory, but all brake pads have to be bedded-in with the rotors (new or used) that they will be used against. 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

    1. After installing new brake pads, make 6-to-10 stops from approximately 30-35 MPH applying moderate pressure.
    2. Make an additional 2-to-3 hard stops from approximately 40-45 MPH.
    4. Allow at least 15 minutes for the brake system to cool down.
    5. After step 4 is completed, your new Hawk Performance brake pads are ready for use.

    Great pads

    Glad I picked these over a few other pads I was looking at. I had the bed them to the new cross drilled rotors I bought, but once they were set these things clamp really well. Great upgrade over stock cheapo pads.

    First of all, K series shipping is so fast, I don't know how they do it!! Now, on to the pads. I followed the instructions on the box exactly. I resurfaced my rotors and followed the recommended bed -in procedure. The pads never grabbed as hard as the ones I took off which were the autozone gold ceramic. Braking when the pads were cold was extremely poor and I was alomost hesitant to drive behind someone at a close distance. Once heated up it was a little better but still mediocre at best. Pair all that with the terrible brake dust and you get a 2 star rating. Will never buy these again. I bought another set of Autozone gold ceramic and i'm quite happy. I have the Hawks sitting in a box somewhere. A waste of $86

    Work great!!!

    Have these matched up with Power Slot Slotted Rotors and they work great! Once they warm up they work awesome, no complaints at all. Comes with some grease or whatever too, so install is quick and easy.

    Great improvement over OEM

    These pads like everyone else say do take a minute to grab hard. Compared to my stock pads these DO in fact grip more and when you need them most they GRAB more after the intial braking. May not be good for track I dunno but I do know that when they heat up they get hella stickier and I didn't notice any brake dust until the end of the pad life. When they get wet they take much longer to grip. It's a bit scary at first to not have any brakes but I can say this. I like them better than ceramic.

    Good Overall

    Well, you can't beat the price. I paid 72 bucks for the fronts of my Type S. The ups? They stop very well. The downs? They are dusty as a grandmas minge, and they don't have great initial bite. Stomp on the brakes, and everything in your car will be in footwell. I'd be giving this a 5-star if they weren't so dusty!

    Great street pads, not track pads

    I bought and installed these about 16 months ago. They work great on the street - it takes a stop or two for them to heat up, but then they definitely bite harder. I have used them for two weekends at the track (Mid-Ohio and Putnam Park) for a total of about 300ish track miles. Please note that these pads did not work very well at the track. They could not handle the heat and were 'glazing' on the rotors. They work well for autocross though.

    Installed with Brembo cross-drilled rotors and braking performance is not noticeably improved. Perhaps new lines would help them bite better. Also, pads squeak a lot after a cold start and put out moderate levels of dust.

    Solid stopping power

    While I had these they performed their job very well and I was very satisfied with their stopping ability. In my experience they also produced large amounts of dust and moderate to high amounts of noise according to how hot they were, so they may not be appropriate for a car used solely as a daily driver.
