Description:

Performance brake pads are fantastic, giving the advanced driver more stopping bite on city streets and the chance to sneak onto the track occasionally. They come with one major drawback, though: dust. That is, until Hawk changed performance brakes.

Hawk Ceramic Brake Pads carry the tradition of stopping strength you expect from Hawk, yet leave the extra dust, well, in the dust. Thanks to these specially engineered Hawk Ceramic Brake Pads, performance drivers with sweet wheels have an alternative that preserves shine.

Hawk Ceramic Brake Pads are also rotor-friendly and low-noise, reducing friction and vibration like a Hawk pad should. They fit fast in place of stock pads, and Hawk Ceramic Brake Pads come burnished and ready to be bedded. What's even better, your Hawk Ceramic Brake Pads carry a Lifetime Warranty.

Why not stop your ride with the best of all worlds? For low dust, minimized noise and top performance, swoop down on Hawk Ceramic Brake Pads.



Frequently Asked Questions


What brake pad compound is used?
Ceramic

How much dust do the brake pads create?
Very low dusting

Basic pad shims and brake parts lubricant is included

How hard are they to install?
Varies by application, but removal of calipers is required. Having a caliper piston compressing tool is very helpful. Remove some fluid from your brake fluid reservoir to prevent overflowing. Fresh fluid and flush is recommended.

Notes:

Grand Sport in SoCal

Only a few miles on these 1 piece pads so far, but I'm impressed by smooth linier stopping and quietness. These are replacing the Hawk 6 puck pads, and I prefer these.

Solid Upgrade over OEM Pads

My Silverado only has Front Disc Brakes. I swapped out the OEM parts (with a bit of life left) for for Hawk Ceramic pads and Centric Premium Discs. Once the pads had a chance to get to know the discs I could feel an improvement with braking performance. There is a bit more initial "bite" with the Hawk pads. My previous stopping habits now having me stop short of where I expect the truck to stop. With about 100 miles of in-town driving, I've yet to see brake dust.

Disappointed in the squealing noise and uneven braking

Disappointed in the squealing noise and uneven braking . I had done extensive research including forums, etc. They grip well but grip unevenly - not smooth. I had put these pads on with brand new rotors as well. After a few miles the squealing started and has continued for thousands of miles. They were properly installed and bedded so very disappointed with the noise. The dust has greatly improved over the stock ones that were on my Challenger. That was the only highlight sad to say.

STOP

Have only had these pads on for maybe 2 weeks...hence the 4 star review. Still a little too soon to say they are the greatest. Gave them 5 stars on appearance b/c they sure were some pretty brake pads :/. Seriously though, these were simple to install and made a noticeable difference in stopping. The pads these replaced were high quality pads and weren't in their worst condition when I repllaced them. That being said though, these are definitely pads I will continue to buy for all my rides.

Hawk Performace Ceramic brake pads gets it done!

Have been using these pads for years in all my vehicles and have never had any issues. Improved stopping power over OEM pads with less brake dust and are noise free. Definitely recommend these. I do recommend to pair these with a quality brake rotor to achieve the best performance.

First rate pads albeit at a premium price

Let me just start by stating this is the 2nd time purchasing Hawk ceramic pads. The main reason - dust- the lack of. These produce much less than the Bendix and World Brake pads i have used. My beef though is they are quite expensive but, you do get powerful braking and less dust. I wish they included the stainless guides that the pads glide on. For the price the $8.00 kit should be included. In the end i am very happy with what i got from them.

Brake Dust !!!

Just bought a 2014 370Z Roadster with 9,500 mi, but OEM brake pads were already tarnishing the Rayes 19 in Sport rims. To much invested, so after researching reviews replaced almost new original pads with the highly touted Hawk pads that cost over $50 per wheel, parts stores sell pads for all four wheels for less than $50. Bedded pads in and so far dust seems minimal, disk wear appears normal, hope they perform as advertised and reviews claim. Your welcome !!!

Hawk Pads NEVER Fail!!!!

I've used Hawk pads for over 15 years now on street and race vehicles, and they never fail to do their job and exceed my expectations! I had experienced the infamous horrible squealing from the front brakes on my 2014 Charger R/T whenever I was coming to a slow stop; sounded like a freight train stopping,I went through many pads from Duralast GT's, to EBC Yellow's/Red's, But these Hawk's did the trick!!! NO More Screeching!! Don't hesitate to go with Hawks!!! You won't ever be disappointed!

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.

Great quality pads

Pads are great quality. Provide the stopping performance that I wanted with hardly any annoying break dust. Thus far, no squeaks either. Pads included grease to apply to back of pads to eliminate vibrations that causes squeaking.

Great choice in pads

I installed these pads last week and the quality of the pad seems outstanding. They fit perfectly, came with brake lube and were well packaged. Install was a snap and performance seems fine for my daily driver. (2014 Nissan Altima -rear) No noise, they broke in cleanly, and they stop well. Just wish they made the same pad for the front. What gives Hawk?

Great Brakes! SRT

Had the Hawk pads installed by my Jeep dealer, was tired of having to wash the rim on my Jeep every 3 days. These pads have reduced the brake dust by 80%, rims still looked good after a week of heavy driving. Zero noise from them. My SRT still stops on a dime, haven't noticed any issues. I have already recommended these pads and Autoanything.com to at least a dozen people.
