I am a pizza driver and I do a lot of street driving. I ahve been buying premium break pads for a long time, since I believe this is an important caveat for safe driving. In the past I have been buying Akebono Ceramic break pads, because of good reviews and less dust on my aluminum rims. However Hawk HPS Brake Pads surpassed my expectations. With very little breaking force (maybe 1/2 of the force necessary for Akebono pads) they do the excellent breaking job. The dust might be a little more but I feel more secure with Hawk HPS Brake Pads. The only negative comment I have is that these pads do not come with the installation hardware - caliper shims. I reused the old shims which CAME with Akebono pads. Thanks for reading.
