Better than OEM pads
When my OEM pads wore out, i decided to try the Hawk Ceramic pads along with Centric rotors. Good move. The new brake setup grab alot harder than the stock OE ones. The Hawk pads offer more stopping power, more aggressive bite with great feel. My wheels are also much cleaner now! These pads do not give off much brake dust. I would gladly purchase Hawk pads again in the future.
Very noticeable braking performance than stock brake pads
I installed these brake pads on my 2012 Acura TSX daily driver. I've driven a little over 10,000 mi. since the installation. These brake pads are definitely an upgrade in braking performance. I've noticed much stronger stopping power and less brake pedal pressure with more linear and progressive braking as well. I will definitely by these again and will also buy a set for my wife's MDX.
Acura TSX 2011 - EBC Rotor (Red Stuff Pads) KIT
Finished installing this kit last week and couldn't be happier. The TSX gave me a few fits with rotor screws and caliper bolts not wanting to budge but the installation of the kit was simple. The pads so far (not bedded or worn in yet) have so far been good. Pads are no longer spongy and definitely a lot less noise and brake dust already.
