1997-2013 Corvette C5 and C6 rear brake pads, EBC Redstuff DP31160C
EBC Redstuff DP31160C street/sport rear brake pads for C5 and C6 Corvette except Z06/ZR1/Grand Sport/J56
When shopping for Corvette brakes, three words may keep coming to your attention: Organic, metallic and ceramic. Each brake pad compound has its place, but for daily-driven Corvettes, we’re big fans of ceramic compounds like what’s found in these EBC Redstuff premium Corvette brake pads. Redstuff C5 and C6 Corvette brake pads ship with a high-friction formula so you get immediate brake bite when you step on the pedal. EBC claims a 15 percent improvement in braking ability while still maintaining extremely low dust properties. Unless you like cleaning your Corvette’s wheels, you’ll appreciate the minimal brake dust from Redstuff pads.
While EBC Redstuff Corvette brake pads aren’t specifically recommended for track days and heavier performance use, they’re definitely capable of hard use. Unless you’re hitting the autocross course in your C5 or C6, you’ll enjoy consistent, fade-free brake performance from Redstuff ceramic Corvette brake pads. We also like EBC's brake in coating (yes, it's spelled like that on purpose). It eliminates much of the usual break-in period for new brake pads and helps deliver a smooth, firm pedal on your Corvette sooner after a fresh set of brake pads are installed.
If you need more braking performance for your Corvette, we recommend EBC Yellowstuff brake pads or a set of our Hawk HPS or higher Corvette brake pads. They’ll keep your brake pedal firm in the hardest driving, but expect tradeoffs. More dust and noise, plus additional brake rotor wear, are common as your friction compound gets more aggressive and heat-resistant. And if you need new Corvette brakes but you're not sure you want to tackle the job yourself, Vette Lab maintains a full installation and service facility in the Metro Detroit area.
