Which commercially available metric pads have the most grip? Is it worth it to buy the Hawk or other racing pads?

I use the severe duty pad made by Raybestos. It's made for (police/taxi/fleet use).

Raybestos # SS-D154
Carquest # GMD154F

We sell them for $50.08 a set.

We have run the NAPA Heavy DUty and had no problems, We tried them when we got tired of eating disks with the Perf friction pads.

What do you need brakes for? We go to the local Motor Supply for our stuff. I think if you are paying more than $25 to put brake pads on your whole car, you are paying too much. We buy the el cheapos and have always gotten all year out of them.

I agree with 94, we're not on asphalt. It's easy to lock up on dirt. I've had no problems with standard pads.

You will get a better pedal feel with semi-metalic pads than with organic pads. Just make sure to ask for the semi-metalic.

I ran the hawk blacks for a couple of season's and went through a lot of brake rotors.... this year I tried the 2nd from the top metallics from napa and I will be going back to the hawks, junk rotors or not..the hawks have a much better pedal feel and can control the car 2 cents
