Because some drivers choose EBC pads, I thought they might find this EBC compound chart useful:


I think I've previously posted the Hawk and Ferodo compound charts in this thread, too...found 'em, in the same post:

My car has about 27K street miles on it and I'm easy on brakes, so the OE pads are hardly worn at all. But, I'm tired of the dust and want to limit wear on the rotors. So, I'm considering trying an aftermarket pad.

First, I have a question regarding the OE rotors: Assuming they are not at/near minimum thickness, can/should they be machined before I replace pads? In the past, on one piece cast iron rotors I would think the answer to this question would be yes, but on these, I'm not sure.

Second, I'm looking for a pad that meets the following requirements and welcome suggestions/recommendations on brand/compound (ceramic?):
  • Spirited street driving, no track duty
  • Performance comparable to OE pad
  • Quality / dependability comparable to OE pad
  • Competitively priced
  • Low dust
  • Low noise
  • Low rotor wear

Thanks in advance for suggestions/recommendations!

Are you referring to the StopTech Street or Sport pads?

Ferodo ds2500 if you want a bit more than OE. Dust about same, low to no noise. I'm also switching to either Motul 660 or Redline 600 fluid.

Always replace or machine your rotors for a new set of pads. Measure the thickness to make sure you have material to machine off.

A few choices for what you are looking for:

309 or the Sport pads is likely what you want the 308 and 305 are OE like but not any better than OE.
