Default Hawk pads

I searched found different info on pads. I was just wondering which hawks to get the Street Performance ones or the HP pads. Pros and cons please. I have stock rotors.

People claim with the Hawk HP oppose to the SP that there is noticeable noise and rotor wear, and dust. Anyone else notice that.

I guess it depends on a few things. What car you have, what brakes you have, what you plan on doing with the car (i.e. street driven, HPDE's, autoX)

Go with Hawk HP (for street), it's fine for everyday street use. Heard that these hold up for light track use as well. HP+ is the more aggressive pad and is more for track use - I think these will wear out rotors fast and put out a lot of brake dust.

Well right now it has aftermarket suspension, no real power upgrades. I plan on autoX but that will be from time to time.

there's a good description here:

I'd go with the HPS if I were you . . . or as someone said Axxis Ultimates.

i have hawk hp street all around witha eg6 rear disc conversion, power slot rotors, and earl's stainless steel brake lines and the car stops on a dime with no fade at all. the car stopped much better with the hawk's opposed to the autozone pads i had in before.

how is the brake dust on the hawk street pads? anyone know? i have the axxis pads and i dont like them very much. i have brembo slotted rotors and i think the fade with these pads is bad. plus they put out a **** load of brake dust.

i got some squeal after a few months... but only from the right front. i was told it might have been an installation issue and not due to the pads themselves...

I agree too, had Axxis pads on my previous car and those things just blew chunks. THE worst brake I have ever used on any car I've ever owned. I don't care what anyone says but if you're more worried about high levels of brake dust, you're probably not too worried about improved braking performance. It's not always the case but most of the better stopping pads produce a good amount of brake dust.

I've used the same set of Axxis Ultimates on my car for 2 track days and 1000's of miles in between. They always stop well, never fade, are nice to the rotors, and still have a good amount of pad left. That being said, I don't see that high of top speeds at the track with my car (~90 MPH tops), so the brakes aren't really all that taxed. I think these are great pads for street, autox, and light track use. Any pad will be "crap" if it's used past its intended heat range.

If I go to a faster track and/or get more power, I'm going to look into getting some Hawk HP+'s for the track. I'll most likely still run Ultimates on the street tho . . .

I don't have the HPS on my civic, but I do have a set on my girl's Maxima. They are very nice pads, however they are somwhat noisy (depending on application I guess). There is also quite a bit of brake dust.
