So far, so good. Check with me in another 10 years or 80,000 miles.

Everything these pads claim is true. They are silent, low dust, and increases stopping power. I've read reviews where people claim that these pads squeak when cold. Personally, I live in Colorado where we just had a major snowstorm the other day and not a peep from the pads! A definite must-have upgrade for anyone changing their brakes! My only gripe is the bed-in procedure. It requires a specific driving procedure of speeding up and slowing down from multiple speeds which is not feasible in a shopping center (where the shop that did my brakes is located) or city environment. It would be great if there was some sort of back road to do it in but there wasn't. So, since the bed-in was stressed so much by the manufacturer, I was stressed about not having been able to do it as was spelled out. I understand the importance of the bedding-in but I could not find an alternative way other than do my best in between lights and hope it was good enough.

This is my 2nd set of Hawk HPS pads. I bought the first in 2006 so I could do some NASA-sponsored track days at Summit Point Motorsports Park. These pads, and my stainless steel brake lines, worked beautifully with my 1993 Honda Prelude 4WS. Whether braking for the Summit Point Carousel or the Loop at the end of the straight, my Hawk pads performed wonderfully.
