Guys, have a set of Hawk pads all the way around on my 05 daily driver. Srtarting to hear some squeeling at redlights after 7-8K miles. Is that normal wear for these pads?

They should past longer then that, like 20k+ I would think. These are the first hawk pads I've run, but Carbotech bobcats on my last car lasted for 40k+. I would pull the pads, clean the calipers real well, and regrease the contact points.

I know you said daily driving only, but I couldn't help it !
Hawk HP+ (Fronts) 500 Miles and 4 track days and they are toast !

I have over 15K on mine, with no squeaks or problems.
