I put my new Hawk pads this past weekend finally. I love them. about 300 miles now and you can't tell by looking at the wheels! Not like with the stockers, one day and it looks like you have been weeks with out washing the wheels!

Anyone on the fence about these, call James @ Lindsy and get a set. They are well worth the money. I know I will recoup my money in less wheel cleaner boought and my time spent washing them everyother day!:eek:

They feel great as far as their performance! Just wanted to share.

Glad you are happy with the pads... I have to agree that these pads are a great replacement. I rank them right up there with the shifter as a "must-do mod"

Me too... just put on the summer wheels tonight, did some spirited driving and already look like they live at a coal mine.

I'd like to get some opinions of the guys who track their V. I don't know if I want to get rid of brake dust and possibly lose brake performance. Is there any gain or loss in brake performance?

I do not have any track experiance, but as far as I can tell there is no loss of performance. I feel they work as well if not better.

Hawk has a great name in the Autocross racing bussines. Speaking wih a friend that teaches Driving at Summit Point, he uses Hawk Pads on his Vette. Plus, from what I hear most of the Vette guys run them.

Hope this helps!

The Hawk Pads will outperform the stock pads any day. The initial feel under hard braking will be that they are not going to work, but as soon as they heat up they will stop much faster than the stock. AND NO BRAKE DUST.

I need to go ahead and get a set to be replaced in the future, I hate the brake dust. But I'm at about 6700 miles and want to wait a little.
James got any idea a rough price range the dealerships charge to do a pad replacement if I already have the pads and the "old" ones aren't wore down yet (meaning no needed rotor work) ?

Anything for a Non-V James?Just checked with the supplier. These same pads are available for a regular CTS also. They are a little less expensive; front pads HB439F.555 are $91.88 and rear pads HB440F.606 are $71.91, $163.79 total for both plus shipping...

I have heard that Hawk pads are hard on rotors, from several people. When my pads wear our I'm going with Z-Rated pads from Performance Friction, I have these pads on my Corvette and even after a track day there is very little dust.
