Need help with brake pad choice.

Hey guys I am getting ready to change wheels and would like to put some good pads on while the wheels are off. Any suggestions? I would like some that DO NOT squeak if possible. lol

I have EBC Reds (new style with ceramic compound) and they suck. They squeel and they dust up the rims. And yes they were installed properly with the rotors prepped correctly. These pads just suck. Get something else. I have heard good things about Hawk pads.

Yeah i've heard a lot of squeeking complaints from EBC users...I've run hawks in a couple cars and been happy. (i cant remember exactly what the specific pad was called)

We offer Hawk brake pads and recommend the HPS compound for street driving. They are low on dust and no squeaking.

I run EBC Reds and haven't had any squeeling? JonB is all about the EBCs and says Hawks eat rotors.

I sprayed brake pad silencer on the pads before installing. Did y'all do this?

I run the Hawk HPS with EBC rotors and I have zero squeal and almost no dust after break-in. Since I run polished rims, low dust is important to me and I have been very happy with them.

They have also not worn my rotors significantly after 10K or so street miles. There are more aggressive compound Hawk pads for racing that might eat rotors though.

There are two types of Hawks that are used on the Viper. HPs adn HPS. HPs have better stopping ability, but have more dust. The HPS is more for street use and have a lettle less dust. I have a full set selling for $195 shipped to your door.

How much less dust than EBC green? Is it a noticeable difference?

Maybe the sqeaking is yet to come, but I'm EBC Reds squeak-free. I spray disc brake quiet on the pads and haven't had trouble. Do you all use the spray when installing the pads?

Yes, and they still squeel. Especially in the cold. And they dust up the rims like a bitch. In summary, they suck.

They are good for street and track. Moderate dust but doesn't bother me.
