    Need to replace my stock rear brake pads, i plan to sometime do a Big Brake Upgrade once my rotors need to be replaced, but for not i just want to get through the winter before upgrading.

    What are some good pads? I don't race or do track events, but i do like to have fun on country curvy roads.

    Somewhere around 100 bucks is ideal.


    Thanks in advanced.

    any semi-metallic or carbon/metallic.... Dont get caught up in the "ceramics".

    Service the caliper sliders while you're in there.

    Like Magic said....good advice there....Hawk HPS are great street pads (not the HPS+) I don't know anything on the new Street 5.0 series from Hawk yet... I don't think just a set of rear pads is too much should be in budget.

    I can check my parts stash tomorrow after work, I believe I have some centric or powerstop pads that came with my rebuilt calipers.

    I have a set of ceramic pads in the p/s rear, and autozone specials in the drivers side. Does just fine.
