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.

Installed a set of these pads on my 01 Cherokee over two years ago and have driven with them from sunny Arizona all the way to the east coast and places in between and back and I'm still amazed as to their grabbing power, durability and low dust. They feel better than ceramic and OEM pads and have kept me out of trouble in more than one occasion even when braking on rain and snow. Getting ready to replace the first pair and I luv 'em.

I'm a boat manufacturer and pull some heavy loads. I've been burning up pads and rotors about every 6 months. I've change to stoptech cryo slotted rotors and Hawk LTS pads and so so very pleased.Install was a snap as well as break in. No squeal and I can finally stop with confidence.

So far they seem to be fine. Only had them on a couple days. Installed them w/ new stoptech cryo rotors. Initial break-in smelled like an electrical fire, but that could have been a combination with the rotors. Pads came with grease, but DID NOT come with new clips? I was a little surprised that "good pads" didn't come with new clips. Other than that, no complaints yet- but again its only been a couple days.

I love these pads. They work a lot better than the factory pads installed on my 4Runner. No noise and better stopping power. I have also used the HPS pads on my 4Runner and feel that these are a better pad for a SUV/Light truck.

I have used many different pads on my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee but have finally settled on these. This is the 2nd pair and will not use any others. They are pricey but worth it. Have tried EBC yellowstuff at almost twice the price but prefer these. They shed some dust but they really brake. Pair them with EBC slotted rotors and you have a winning combination.

Bought them to ensure strong stopping power when the 35' travel trailer is attached to my truck and they work well. Have had Hawk's before and they are very serviceable, hold up well and do not dust up the wheels as bad as the OEM disks.

I'll admit that I was a little worried about installing brake rotors and brake pads for the first time, but after doing a decent amount of research, everything went pretty smoothly, all things considered. I do regret not using the grease supplied as there's a slight rubbing sound at a complete stop, but it's nothing to write your congressman about. As far as performance goes, it's night and day from the factory brakes. Very, little dust and the stops are really smooth. 300+ miles and no regrets!

I would like to purchase your Hawk LTS brake pads to go with these Roto-Tech rotors. A drop down box for the brake order asks me to select whether the rotors are 330 or 350mm? Is there a way for you to tell me which will fit properly?

what are the letter codes of these brake pads
Answered by Nathan S. — Jul 19, 2012 3:12 PM
Hawk indicates a letter "Y" on expected brake effect for the LTS pads. Nominal friction is most likely a "G" but is not indicated as these are high performance pads and an emphasis has been placed on higher temperature operation.flag Accept Answer

2007 Toyota Tacoma
I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma, 6 lug, that I need to get new front pads for. I have not liked the factory pads since I bought the truck. I seem to fight brake fade when performing normal driving and also when towing trailers. I am trying to figure out if I should purchase the Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads or the Hawk LTS Brake Pads. Any help you provide would be greatly appreciated.

2009 Chevy Express
I bought Hawk D785 pads for my 2003 chevy van. I sold it before I installed them. I now have a 2009 chevy van and wanted to use them on the 2009 van. It calls for a D974, which is the same as the pad now called for on the 2003 van....but I got D785. Question: Can I still use the D785 if they are the same size as the D974???? Thank you, Bill
