2005-2013 Corvette Z06, ZR1 and Grand Sport Front Brake Pads, Hawk Street 5.0
Front pads only for 2005-2013 C6 Corvette Z06/ZR1/Grand Sport
Street 5.0 from Hawk Brakes is one of the latest compounds, and it really pushes the boundaries of what street-driven Corvettes are capable of. As Hawk explains it, it's a balance between stopping power and ABS functionality (involving what's called brake torque), and these Hawk disc brake pads deliver the Corvette owner a new level of control: They’re designed to improve stopping power over factory brakes -- even over Hawk's own HPS compounds -- without introducing unwanted characteristics that can appear with more aggressive pad compounds. We’re talking about dust, noise and increased rotor wear – things that might be acceptable at the track, but that daily-driver Corvettes can do without.
According to Hawk, "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."
