    What's Your Favorite Brake Pad?

    Took my car in for service today and they told me that my front brake pads were getting low. Also said my A/C belt was bad.

    Anyway, I figure if I'm going to buy pads, I might as well get some nice, high performance ones. Whatever is on there now is good, but if I can get better, I'll do that. I tend to use engine braking to slow down, so the pads should last me a while.

    The car is a daily driver so Id like to get at least a couple of years out of the pads.

    What are you all using?

    I've been looking around and Hawks seems to be what most people like. Thinking I'll pick some up.

    i have the EBC Redstuff Ceramic brakepads, and i am very happy with them.
    Brake performance is excellent, they dust a little bit more than stock brake pads, but the dust can be wiped of with a towel,

    Sweet. I ordered up some Hawk HPS front and rear pads. Hopefully I'll be able to find the time to install them....
