Brembo Rotors

Well looks like ill be ordering the OEM Brembo Rotors but i was wondering about brake pads. There are so many to choose, im just looking for something with good stopping power and something that wont eat the rotors up quick. I saw some Hawk F&R HPS Brake Pads but i didnt know anything good or bad about them for my purposes.

Why Try,

Whats your purpose? I have the Hawk HPS pads on my car F&R. I also had them on my '01 and I think they worked very well for me. I don't do any track events, but I do, do some spirited driving I don't see alot of brake dust, I don't have any squeaking, and they don't seem to be eating my rotors. Hope this helps.

Jeff
