Retraction of 'Not what Hawk's rating claims!' review
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!
Great bang for your buck!
I paired these with the EBC Sport Rotors on my '03 RSX-S. Currently 3 months and 500km in, they are performing great. No cracks in the rotors and 100km/h to 20km/h takes about 7-10m depending on conditions. Have yet to experience rain/snow of winter in Vancouver (Canada); will try to remember to update after winter.
