Hawk or Greenstuff

3921 Views 27 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  hypersprite

Like so many others I've had enough of the dust that the standard brake pads produce so am going to get the fronts replaced. I believe either Hawk or Greestuff are the ones to get.

So my question is which one? I've been told the Greemstuff pads will cost me around $200 for the front pair. I don't know what the Hawks are worth.

Any experiemce with these?

Did some research on the Hawks a few months back. It appears that they will dust less, but they may squeel, which I cannot tolerate.
I did get some pricing fm Aussie distributors but I threw out the info when I decided against these pads. From memory, expect to pay about $180 for the rears and around the $240 for the fronts.
HS - If you're happy with the performance characteristics of the OEM Nissan pads, then I'm sure you won't be let down by either the Green or Red pads, as you have yet to exceed the temp characteristics of the stock pads.

The reality is that untill you put the pads on your car, you won't know how satisfied / dissatisfied you'll be with each pad. But I'm guessing that with general street / occasional mountain driving, the EBC pads will suit you fine.
