The stock brakes on my Cobalt SS were reasonably quiet, but didn't have the grip I was looking for. The stop-and-go traffic I deal with around the DC Metro area causes a good amount of brake wear on OEM pads. In this case, Hawk Ceramic Pads are an excellent upgrade. The brake dust generation is lower. There is a mild increase in brake noise, which is to be expected from a performance brake pad. I highly suggest upgrading the brake pads and the rotors at the same time.
