Hitting the Rev Limiter just took on a whole new meaning with Hawk Performance’s High Performance Street 5.0. For years engine builders have been pushing motors to the limits of their ability, and at Hawk Performance we continue to get one step closer to the ABS Rev Limiter. High Performance Street 5.0 is one step closer to giving you the greatest stopping power and pedal feel for your vehicle without 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 our goal with High Performance Street 5.0. Not a replacement for our current HPS product, but a change that allows the driver to challenge themselves and their car with a new and unique driving feel.
High Performance Street 5.0 disc brake pads are designed to be the premium replacement pad for your American Muscle sports car, German or Italian Touring Sedan, Tuner Market, Light Truck and SUV with over 1900 vehicle applications offered.
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 street car friendly characteristics. Hawk Performance High Performance Street 5.0 Pads offer more stopping power and get resistance to brake fade, elevating your street car’s performance. This makes them more responsive and durable than most standard original brakes and makes Hawk Performance High Performance Street 5.0 Pads the best choice to increase your braking performance and reliability while being both cost conscious and “Made in the USA” 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.

Note: Hawk Performance burnishes its Performance brake pads as a final step in the factory, but all brake pads have to be bedded-in with the rotors (new or used) that they will be used against. Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.
Bed-in / Burnishing Instructions
After installing new brake pads, make 6-to-10 stops from approximately 30-35 MPH applying moderate pressure.
Make an additional 2-to-3 hard stops from approximately 40-45 MPH.
DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
Allow at least 15 minutes for the brake system to cool down.
After step 4 is completed, your new Hawk Performance brake pads are ready for use.
