Hawk HPS 5.0 Rear Brake Pads 2004-2017 STI
Hawk High Performance Street 5.0 Brake Pads improve performance with increased stopping power and resistance to brake fade. Developed as a more responsive and durable option compared to Original Equipment, the pads release low levels of dust in normal street driving conditions while also creating little noise.
The pads feature a Ferro-Carbon compound and offer advanced braking characteristics to enhance the driving experience. This new compound combines the safety and quality of aerospace design with the braking technology of motorsports for improved performance under heavy braking situations.
Made in the United States, Hawk High Performance Street 5.0 Brake Pads are gentle on rotors while still meeting the demands of today's drivers. Brake pads are wear items and as such, should be inspected regularly and replaced as necessary. Pads should be replaced when approximately 1/8th inch of friction material remains on the steel backing plate.
Note: Even though Hawk Performance burnishes its brake pads as a final step in the factory, all brake pads have to be bedded-in with the rotors (new or used) that they will be used against. Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.
