Getting ready to put some new pads on but would like to upgrade to a higher end better pad. Any advise on some good high end better stopping pads that anyone has experience with? Feedback is greatly appreciated!!
I am in the same dilemma too. I have narrowed it down to EBC Ultimax black pads or Performance Friction Carbon Metallic. I have used performance friction in the past and never had a problem. I am tempted by EBC because they make a quality setup for cars in various compounds.
I put a set of Hawk LTS pads on all four wheels and it seems much improved over whatever was on there, probably AC delco's as the last guy always had the dealer do his work for him. Lower dust and better stopping power.
Just turning to knock off any glaze or impurities. The rotors are good..the pads are about 85% gone...noticed it when I was swapping to the 22" rims. Figured it was a good time to change/upgrade. Expensive pads but I expect they will be worth it.
OK...the new EBC Yellow Stuff pads are installed. I am VERY pleased. I didn't expect such a dramatic difference. It's as if the overall braking capability of the vehicle increased by 50%. I highly recommend this product.
