Smooth braking but creates more brake dust

My new Hawk Performance Ceramic pads are awesome, especially on new rotors. Breaking in dry and wet conditions has been perfect so far. I have only had them on my car for about 1000 miles and most of that has been highway. Stopping is just like before, i can stop on a dime! Great product.

I am retracting what I said in a prior review. During my last brake pad replacement, I ran into problems with brake calipers. Through a process of elimination 1) possible bad resurfacing of the rotors and 2) possible bad calipers, I eventually found that the calipers were bad. Because I didn't resurface the rotors and HPS 5.0 pads after the multiple changes, the brakes didn't work properly. Hawk recommended 200 grit sanding of pads and rotors and rebedding as recommended. IT WORKED!
