Performance & Technology
Get your Cadillac or Corvette’s rotors stopping on a dime with these Hawk Performance HPS Front Brake Pads. The HPS brake pads meet the high temperature braking demands of high performance vehicles by efficiently controlling heat dissipation. Hawk’s HPS Ferro-carbon unique compound engineered to combine the mindfulness and quality of the aerospace design with braking technology of motorsports.
Hawk Performance HPS brake pad offers a higher friction coefficiency over stock brake pads that can provide you 20-40% more stopping power with higher resistance to brake fade than most standard replacement pads. HPS pads feature less fade means you will have a highly durable brake pad with less brake dust.
Even though these pads use a much more aggressive compound, they fit the same as the stock pads. Installation is as simple as removing the stock pads and installing these in their place. HPS Brake Pads are burnished as a final step in the factory, but all brake pads have to be bedded-in with their rotors (new or used). Properly bedding-in new brake pads generates a transfer film at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.
