    Question Brake suggestions

    I've got a 2015 si coupe. Need new brakes and was wondering what brake pads you people have tried and liked, and what you did'nt like. Most of my driving is highway and some spirited driving. Thanks in advance

    Most aftermarket pads will leave a lot brake dust. Race and semi-race pads will need to get heated before they can operate correctly. The best pads are OEM.

    Ive been running hawk hps pads. A little squeaky under light braking but they have great bite to them when im doing some backwoods spirited driving with sharp turns and a bit of late braking into them. I always stay in my lane though lol

    I’d stick with OEM.
    If you want something with more bite, check out either Carbotech or Cobalt.

    +1 I would stick with OEM in your case. I use Duralast GT from autozone only because of the free replacements

    Count me in on the OEM pads, unless you're swapping rotors as well. If you're going slotted/drilled, Hawk all the way.

    At 80K miles, I'm still on the original brakes. They must be pretty good. They will be replaced with OEM's when the time comes.

    Strangely, I find that this car goes through rear brakes faster than front brakes.
    Case in point - I just replaced rear pads and rotors for the second time in my ownership of this car (I bought it new; now has nearly 140,000 miles) yet I'm still on the original front pads and rotors!

    This would indicate a problem were it me. I would have it looked into by a qualified mechanic. You're not getting proper stopping power most likely.
