Your towering truck or surly SUV rules the road. But, the big automakers may have shortchanged your rig on stopping power. Leave it to Hawk Performance and their all-new LTS Brake Pads to put plenty of braking bite back into your big dog.
Hawk LTS Brake Pads handle the heat generated by the your truck or SUV's big brakes. Unlike stock pads that are plagued by brake fade, Hawk LTS Brake Pads are specially designed to resist fade and provide consistent grip stop after stop. Hawk LTS Brake Pads can do this by dissipating heat better than any other severe duty pad.
While they're big on performance, Hawk LTS Brake Pads are small on two of your least favorite brake nuisances: dust and noise. In fact, Hawk LTS Brake Pads are extremely quiet for a performance pad and keep your wheels cleaner longer. Best yet, your Hawk LTS Brake Pads boast a Lifetime Warranty.

This is my second set of Hawk LTS brake pads. My review from 4 years ago is still up there and I said I would buy again and I did. Its not that I needed them for my truck, I got a great deal and wanted to store them. For perspective, I have driven 40,000 miles since my last review with 10,000 of those miles towing a travel trailer (7,000 lbs). I measured the new pad and they have just over 1/2" of padding. The "old" ones on my truck currently measured 3/8" after 40,000 miles. I still have plenty of stopping power and the brake dust is still minimal. Looks like my current ones will last a while longer but when they're done, I have my new ones waiting and ready to go.

These pads are the most highly recommended on several Nissan Titan forums. I am prepping my truck to do lots of towing a loaded car hauler so a brake upgrade from OE was a must. Fit, function & operation of these pads is flawless. The only issue I had was the pre-installed shim on the back. There are no instructions with these pads and it left some trial & error whether or not the factory shims should be used with these. I ended up installing the OE outside shims with these and after a day or 2 of driving the pads settled in and all is well. I did have them drag with minimal resistance in the beginning but I chalk that up to the additional shim that I added to each pad. The grease monkey grease that is included with the pads is terrific. I applied it to the back of the pads, between the shims, on the caliper sliders and to the caliper bolts. After 2 weeks none of the grease has thimmed from the heat or slung off inside my rim. Also, NO SQUEALING. I did have my rotors turned prior to this install. I recommend these brakes to all.

These pads are great pads. They were easy to install fit perfectly and do a wonderful job stopping your vehicle. I read some complaints about brake dust but haven't experienced anything yet. Would Definately recommend.

Running oversized m/t tires. Paired these pads with the front DBA 4000xs 4x4 Survival rotors. Brake distance is much shorter and quiet too. I'm happy with the purchase. Looking forward to do the rears.

Replaced original front rotors and pads 2 years ago at 125k with power slot cryo rotors and hawk lts pads. Noticed a slight increase in pedal pressure required to stop but no noise or other problems. The just purchased hawk lts pads were for the rear and replaced the original factory pads at 157k miles. These were used with the original rotors which were still in almost perfect shape. Used sand paper to scuff the rotors, went through hawks break in sequence and have had no problems.
