Just received my 2 piece rotors and BBK. Just trying to get some feedback on brake pads. Thinking about going with Infiniti Sport Brake pads. Thoughts and thanks in advance for the feedback.
This, I think the Akebono Performance ones are the OEM ones?Akebono Performance pads would be my recommendation as an affordable alternative, the stock pads from Infiniti/Nissan aren't all that great if you plan to do any type of canyon driving/tracking.
They are Akebono pads but I think Nissan/Infiniti require a specific composition for the bad, Hawk pads are known to be prettyThis, I think the Akebono Performance ones are the OEM ones?
I have the Hawk HPS 5.0 and the bite is not the same as the OEM pads and they squeal at lower temperatures and dust more easily.
They do however I notice when I actually have to really step on the brakes, it does stop a lot harder than the OEM pads.
I may have made it sound like the brake pads are bad, no they're not they just have to be warmed up and at operating temperature.
