The art of sumo wrestling dates back to 200 BC. And, while there is an undeniable level of discipline that goes into it, we suspect victory has less to do with technique than with which guy hauls around the most padding (and uses it effectively at the right moment). That's why we recommend installing a set of high-performance Kia Optima brake pads found here at AutoAnything. Designed to withstand the rigors of high-output racing, they serve as a direct replacement for stock pads and surpass them in durability by 20 - 40 percent, providing added strength when you need it most.
