We do a lot of high speed expressway driving and the stock GM pads and rotors just couldn't handle the stress. By no means were we looking for extreme performance parts. A friend recommended Hawk pads because it is what he uses for daily driving and for track days. These pads have not disappointed us yet. They grip far better than the OE pads, and haven't generated much dust after a few hundred miles. There is a small amount of noise under heavy/ emergency braking although. Great investment.
THE best pads for your Nissan Titan

These pads are the most highly recommended on several Nissan Titan forums. I am prepping my truck to do lots of towing a loaded car hauler so a brake upgrade from OE was a must. Fit, function & operation of these pads is flawless. The only issue I had was the pre-installed shim on the back. There are no instructions with these pads and it left some trial & error whether or not the factory shims should be used with these. I ended up installing the OE outside shims with these and after a day or 2 of driving the pads settled in and all is well. I did have them drag with minimal resistance in the beginning but I chalk that up to the additional shim that I added to each pad. The grease monkey grease that is included with the pads is terrific. I applied it to the back of the pads, between the shims, on the caliper sliders and to the caliper bolts. After 2 weeks none of the grease has thimmed from the heat or slung off inside my rim. Also, NO SQUEALING. I did have my rotors turned prior to this install. I recommend these brakes to all.
