many people are going to suggest different pads... first question is, what are your goals?

do you track a lot?
do you drive your car like you stole it?

my input would be the Hawk HPS pads. I DD my car with slight, and i mean SLIGHT aggressive breaking and cornering. The pads are relatively inexpensive and very very easy to install by your self. No squeaks, no dust, slightly strong bite then OEM.

Hope that helps

porterfield or ferrodo ds 2500's are great for hard driving or tracking. Loud but very effective.

I have heard SO many mixed reviews on the Hawk HPS pads. I need new breaks soon too....I might just try out Brake Man...super cheap.

I have heard good things about brake man also. Pretty sure there is a thread on here about 'em. Hit that search button with authority!

Well, I need something stronger than OEM one. Few track days and agressive driving somethimes (everybody have these moments). Something to bite better and last more, nothing too agressive. Maybe DS2500 is right choice.

After doing mad research on this I've decide that ferodo's will be the pad I use on my Evo. I was leaning towards carbotech but apparently some have reported that they aren't as good as some make it seem.

Maybe ET800 is the best for you since they are cheaper than others and lots of good reviews about them. I called them 2 times this week and they awnsered all my questions, Although I havn't decide yet and yes we really need sticky on brake pads.

I'm going to need some new pads here soon as well, they are starting to squeek. Those Carbotech pads are freakin expensive.. hope they last longer than these OEM ones. Btw, how long did your stock pads last for? include your driving style. I tend to drive like I'm playing GTA from time to time so my brakes have been put to the test.
