At NGP, we’ve found that a installing a good set of brake pads goes a long ways towards improving your cars stopping capability. And if any brake pad company has proven itself year after year, stop after stop, it’s Hawk Performance. We’ve been installing their pads on VWs and Audis for years and have always been impressed with the consistent performance and quality of their products. As such, we’ve decided to stock up on their most popular line of pads: the HPS performance street series.
The HPS line of pads have been designed from the ground up to offer great stopping performance for street driven vehicles. Hawk uses a unique Ferro-Carbon compound to offer increased stopping distance of 20-40% over stock OE metallic pads. Also, unlike stock metallic pads, Hawk HPS pads are much more resistant to brake fade, delivering consistent braking stop after stop. In addition, this advanced compound also produces significantly less dust than your stock pads, so your wheels stay nice and clean much longer. The inherent squealing and whining typical of most performance brake pads is also non-existent with Hawk HPS pads, which deliver quiet operation time and again.
If you’re like us and push your car hard each day, you owe it to yourself to install a set of Hawk HPS pads right away. With great stopping power, quiet operation and low dust, you simply won’t find a better pad option for your daily driven vehicle. If you’re interested in a good set of brake rotors* to match, we’ve got those too, with several popular VW and Audi applications in stock. And if you take your car to the occasional track day or auto-cross event, Hawk HPS pads will hold up just fine, and certainly much better than your stock pads would.
