    Hi everyone I'm new here. My brakes just worm out so I will need a new set. Is anyone can tell me which kind brake pads are best to buy? Tks

    I like OEM. Long life and decent stopping power as well as low dust.

    your best bet is just get new pads from the dealership. you dont have any big power modifictions so the stock pads work just fine. and make sure you actually need the back brakes cuz the back pads dont wear out nearly as fast as the front

    I do agree with OEM they are good to buy and easy to install. But I was wounder people who got the Axxis Deluxe Plus, Hawk HPS or EBC green stuff, are they worth it to buy it? and which one of them you liked the most?

    The stronger pads are nice, they do provide a stronger stopping power increased friction over the OEM pads. There is always a trade off with stronger pads, the main being increased heat and the other is increased dust.

    The heat is bad because it can warp rotors is not used properly, ie riding the brakes.

    The dust is annoying and will corrode rims if not cleaned regularly.

    Im a fan of HAWK performance pads if your lookng to go different than OEM, HAWK is what I would tell you to get

    EBC redstuff for me
    • Mar 18, 2009 6:34:34 pm
    ok I decided to go wit HAWK HPS in front, and maybe Axxis Deluxe Plus in rear(because it's cheaper that way). But I don't know if it's good idea when you have two different brand of brake pads on my car?

    You'll be fine mixing and matching between front and rear. Hawk pads are great. I'm running Axxis Ultimate's now and the stopping power is fantastic, but they are dusty and squeal a little. When I change pads I'm probably going with the EBC Red Stuff. I'd stay away from the Green Stuff pads. I've heard from a lot of people whose opinions I respect that they are not too great for anything other then standard daily driving and that they don't last very long.

    Shipping out to the west coast from us would be around $20. It couldn't be more than a few dollars off. I would have even priced match for the forum on that deal.

    Hawk has made a brake pad that goes nicely as a brake pad on higher performance street cars. They are a pad that is not to provide increased stopping power, yet do it in a way that it does not add a lot of heat to your rotors.
