Hawk HPS vs. Ceramic?

Did a Search on the forum but didn't find anything stating which is more suited for a daily driver. Also. looked on their site and they mention "new" ceramic pads so I wasn't sure how long they have been on the market and if there were any issues or advantages with them?

Thanks,
Howard

Re: Hawk HPS vs. Ceramic?

Ok going from what I know and remember, ceramic pads have been on the market for a while now. The benifit is supposed to be less or no brake dust. I have heard that they can glaze though and give diminished braking power. Anyone else wanna jump in on this one?

My PBR Ultimate Ceramic pads generate about 3x the dust as the Hawk HPS pads they replaced. I'll probably switch to Hawk HP+ or try some Cobalt pads next.
