Brake Pad Info

Choosing the right brake pad

 

Choosing the correct brake pad starts with an honest assessment of the driver's typical driving conditions.  For example, if the vehicle is driven 80 percent in highway and 20 percent sporty and zero percent on the track, then an Alcon "street" pad will likely offer the best combination of stopping performance, low dust and low noise.

If the vehicle is frequently used for track days but also as a daily driver, it might be better served by the a mid-range racing pad - provided that an even transfer layer of pad material on the rotor is maintained by periodically re-bedding in the pads.
