In the Flatirons Tuning Street Brake Package we have dwindled down the massive variety of brake pads and rotors to help you select what is right for your Subaru WRX. For a daily driven application we have choosen:
- Centric Premium Rotors
- StopTech Sport Slotted Rotors (Best)
- StopTech Sport Brake Pads
- Hawk HPS (Better)
- Hakw HPS 5.0 (Best)
Centric Premium Rotors - A great budget friendly selection.
Centric Premium black rotors feature Original Equipment specifications and production processes. These Centric rotors are manufactured to meet QS and ISO Quality System Standards.
Centric premium rotors utilize an Electrocoating finish that provides long lasting corrosion protection. E-coating is a superior electro-statically applied finish designed to withstand 400 hours of salt water exposure without rusting. Phosphate finishes utilized by other manufacturers provide only minimal protection from the elements; these finishes are generally only effective for the shipping and storage portion of a rotors life. The addition of heat and moisture eliminates the effectiveness of phosphate finishes resulting in immediate corrosion once installed in the vehicle.
StopTech Sport Slotted Rotors - If you are looking for a little more performance out of your rotors these are the way to go.
StopTech recognizes that great brakes need to look as good as they perform. Performance wheels and tires are best complemented with StopTech Slotted Sport Rotors. StopTech slotted brake rotors prevent glazing of the pads, add bite and improve wet and dry braking performance. Every StopTech Sport Rotor is produced from a high quality Centric Parts blank casting and finished in a durable e-coating for corrosion resistance.
StopTech Sport Brake Pads - A budget friendly option with OEM or better performance.
Formerly known as the StopTech Street Performance Brake Pad, StopTech Sport Brake Pads are engineered to meet the demands of high performance driving situations while maintaining their ability to work in normal driving conditions. StopTech Sport brake pads combine the benefits of premium street brake pads with aggressive friction formulas suitable for track day and autocross use.
Hawk HPS Brake Pads - A great pad that will give you better stopping power and keeps dusting to a minimum.
High Performance Street disc brake pads are legendary for increasing stopping power on street-legal vehicles, and increasing the performance of your vehicle's braking system is easy when you choose Hawk Performance Street HPS braking compound. The High Performance Street compound offers a higher coefficient of friction over stock brake pads, and can provide you 20-40% more stopping power and higher resistance to brake fade than most standard replacement pads. Less fade means you will have better pedal feel and more consistent performance in a durable brake pad that generates less dust.
Hawk HPS 5.0 Brake Pads - The best out of our selection. Giving you the most stopping power with very low noise and dusting.
For years, engine builders have been pushing motors to the limits of their ability, and at Hawk Performance, we're closer than ever to pushing the ABS Rev Limiter to its limits. High Performance Street 5.0 pads give your vehicle the greatest stopping power and pedal feel without compromising ABS. HPS 5.0 is a Ferro-Carbon compound that provides advanced braking characteristics to enhance the driving experience. This compound combines the safety and quality of aerospace design with the braking technology of motorsports. The results are shorter stopping distances, improved performance under heavy braking conditions, and street car friendly characteristics.
