New Brake Pads?!?

So as many of you know the stock brake pads on the SRT8 dust like none other. I was looking at some EBC or HAWK HPS pads, anyone swapped these out on their challenger?

I've had the HPS on a mustang before, thought they were great!

Hawk HPS are a nice alternative.

Also check out StopTech pads.

I tried the Hawk HPS on my R/T and they were complete garbage. I now have EBC Yellowstuff's on and they're excellent. A lot of dust, though, which you seem to be looking to avoid.

HPS pads are the most popular pad we sell for the SRT, there are also ceramic s from Hawk as well as redstuff pads from ebc that are lower dust

I went with StopTechs on my Challenger SRT with slotted cross drilled rotors. Liked them so much put the same setup on my SRT Grand Cherokee. Huge improvement on dust and very little (if at all) degradation in stopping power. Highly recommend (I hate brake dust).

I have the hawk hps on my RT and hate them.
They have been on for about 2000 miles but I will be replacing them soon.
