The five highest-rated brake pads, as of 2015, are EBC Green Stuff Brake Pads, EBC Red Stuff Brake Pads, Hawk HPS Brake Pads, Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads and EBC Yellow Stuff Brake Pads, based on a top 10 ranking at AutoAnything. These replacement brake pads are said to perform better than original equipment manufacturer brake pads.
Key features of the Green Stuff brake pads from EBC include resistance to vibrations, which is attributed to a center-line slot, standard-fitted shims and sloping edges. Compared to OEM pads, EBC's Green Stuff brake pads generate less dust. The installation of these modification parts is also a quick and easy process due to their break-in surface layer.
Other recommended brake pads include Posi Quiet Ceramic Brake Pads, Hawk LTS Brake Pads, EBC Green Supreme Brake Pads, StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads and Hawk HP Superduty Brake Pads.
