First time using Ceramic pads

In the old days, ceramic was bad news and everybody knew they destroyed rotors. Well, that's probably not true any more. Turned my rotors and used Hawk ceramic pads on my 02 Maxima. Quieter, less dust and better braking. Just plain better. Threw out my "lifetime pads" receipt from NAPA. I don't want that junk anymore. Install was easy. Strange orange grease made the brackets slide nicely. 500 miles later, I am impressed.
Decent quality brakes

The brakes are great the only problem i saw was that you will need to remove the metal strips behind the wheels which come with them to fit them properly and also there are these metal tabs which can't be removed.
The Hawk normally files, but in this case, helps you stop

I've been using Hawks on my Pontiac G6 GTP for many years and when I finally had to give her up, I'm more than happy to pop her on my new daily ride. The bedding period is kind of confusing at first, but when they do finally get bedded, they stop on a dime.
