Hawk Product Description
High Performance Street 5.0 is one step closer to giving you the greatest stopping power and pedal feel for your vehicle with out compromising your ABS. Too much Brake Torque and your ABS goes into ICE mode, too little and there is no improvement to the product. Pedal feedback, Noise, Brake Torque and Dust control was the goal with High Performance Street 5.0.
The new High Performance Street 5.0 Pads are a Ferro-Carbon compound brake pads that provide advanced braking characteristics to enhance the driving experience. This new compound combines the safety and quality of aerospace design partnered with the braking technology of motorsports. The results are shorter stopping distances, improved performance under heavy braking conditions and friendly street car characteristics.
Hawk High Performance Street 5.0 Pads offer more stopping power and greater resistance to brake fade, elevating your street car’s performance. This makes them more responsive and durable than most standard original brakes.
As standard brake pads wear, brake dust is released as the friction material wears in everyday braking. Hawk High Performance Street 5.0 brake pads are formulated to produce and release extremely low levels of dust in normal street driving conditions while also being very quiet.

Not sure which Hawk performance brake pad is right for your needs? Consult the "Hawk Brake Pad Compounds" graph for an illustration of braking temperatures versus coefficient of friction. A brake pad from the right of the graph such as DTC-60, DTC-70, or DTC-80 will provide aggressive stopping power for the track, but may not be suitable for street driving as they require higher temperatures to function properly. Selecting a pad from the left of the graph such as HPS 5.0, HP+, or the new Street Race will offer a more streetable upgrade with comparatively lower dust and quieter performance, while still improving brake torque and being gentle on rotors.
