The Hawk ceramic pads seem to bite better than plain OEM pads from the auto parts store with less brake dust on my custom rims.

I only have about 1,000 miles since I initially installed the brake pads. So far they have been working well. The installation was okay. Pads are pretty easy to install, however, the brake pads themselves should indicate which pad is for the inside and which pad is for the outside. I didn't notice the grooves and had to do the brake pads twice when I rushed through the first install. I inadvertently had them switched which caused an issue. Otherwise the pads are responsive and work great.

Bought them to ensure strong stopping power when the 35' travel trailer is attached to my truck and they work well. Have had Hawk's before and they are very serviceable, hold up well and do not dust up the wheels as bad as the OEM disks.
