Post subject: Brake pad sugestion

My 95 has a 4 piston Brembo calipers with 332mm Brembo cross-drilled and slotted free floating rotors in front and OEM Calipers with crodd-drilled rotors in the rear. It's about time for new pads and rotors all around. I just don't know what pads to use. Right now it has Hawk HPS on it but they are unneded and dirty. What pads run cleanand have good longevity? I'll keep a set of HPS on hand for the track, but they just create extra work on a daily driver.

I dont know if they make any that will fit, but check out Akebono. They make great pads and other brake parts. We use Akebono on our customers cars because they are some ceramic compound and produce little dust and last a long time. Great for daily driving a beast like your car.

By the way, when are we gonna see some good pics and/or videos of this thing?

Excellent. I'll take a look at their application schedule and see if I'm in luck. It'll end up waiting till I get my new wheels because I'll change the rotors from 332mm to 355mm in front am considering putting 2 piston Brembo calipers in the rear to save a little unsprung weight. It'll depend, somewhat, on what the e-brake situation is when making that switch.

Thanks again for the info.

I have stock calipers and slotted rotors with no problems using HPS pads on the street. Practically no dust and last for years....multi piston calipers and drilled might be another story

e46tuner - that's insteresting. It seems that all pads are going to be dirty and I'm trying to be reaslistic. I'm buying a set of 18" Staggered BBS Style 108 Euro option Wheels that are being rebuilt and mirror polished. Once they get here I don't want to clean them every damn day just to look decent. Once I've had this car a little while my OCD will calm down a bit...
