Compounds are listed generally from least to most aggressive. If you are unsure what pad would work best for you, please do not hesitate to call us!
The Hawk HB551.748 comes in the following compounds:
The HP Plus brake pad is the perfect compromise for drivers looking for an aggressive autocross or track-day pad that is still highly usable on the street. The HP Plus compound uses a unique Ferro-Carbon friction material that was developed and manufactured with high-performance autocross and track-day driving in mind. With its high friction coefficient and resistance to fade, this pad is the perfect upgrade for the enthusiast driver.
The HT-10 compound is a great pad for intermediate drivers that want a streetable pad that still offers superior performance. It has a very smooth initial bite and provides a consistent pedal feel. The HT-10 delivers medium to high torque over a significant temperature range to help increase your track day performance.
The DTC-70 is Hawk Performance’s top-of-the-line racing brake pad compound. It exhibits high initial bite and torque, while still providing superior pad and disc wear. The DTC-70 has exceptional torque control, with superb modulation (controllability) and release characteristics. It is no wonder that this compound is at the top of Hawk’s DTC series.
