    Brake Pads

    I'm looking to change out the brake pads to something with more stopping power over the stock pads. I have found EBC brake pads, DP22172 for the front and DP22188 pads for the rear. Anyone have any experience with these pads?

    I'm starting to look for pads too.
    In the past I have used EBC on other cars, but for me they "dust" way to much. Good stopping but. JMO

    I'm okay w the dust as long as I get good stopping power. I'm gonna try these for about $100.00 for both front & rear.

    Before you make any final decision.
    You know that "more stopping power" pads might be misleading term?

    I would rather ask you what is tour application or the use of them.
    That is - city stopping, or high speed brake fade.

    Pads when they are stopping you, simple deposit themselves onto the rotor surface. It means they "melt", rub off. This process takes place when they reach certain temperature. City pads will reach this point pretty much right away, "racing" pads will need to warm up. But when you do 3 heavy stops from 90 mph to almost 0, city will start degassing, while "racing" will still be great. However, the first stop for them will be very poor and noisy.
    That means that in city, when you suddenly need to stop - racing pads might not provide enough grab (until they warm up).

    I guess you know that already... but keep this in mind. Remember what your application is.

    I had some green EBC on 2009 Elantra (from the previous owner). They were great, but needed about one or two good stops to actually shine.

    Good info PLP, thanks. I'm looking at the 2000 series EBC Greenstuff brake pads. The 2000 series is noted to have better initial bite then the 6000 or 7000 series pads.

    Greenstuff™ – 2000 Series Brake Pads

    EBC Greenstuff™ has a high initial brake effect and gives drivers confidence from first application of the brake pedal. There is no such thing as a no dust pad. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is more easily washed off than most. All pads create more dust as they are bedding in especially if rotors are worn. Nominal friction coefficient 0.55. For heavier faster cars we strongly recommend Redstuff which does offer much less dust.

    Please update how they behave on stock rotors (unless you replace the whole set).

    I can say that on mine they are still fine (25k miles now), but when on a warmer day I push it (meaning, faster passes between intersections and harder braking) they start shaking like either degassing or overheating.
    I think, if I keep the car, I might need to invest in better pads after all.

    I'm at 20k now miles and I'll keep the stock rotors for now. My stock pads seem to overheat quickly w spirited driving & braking. New EBC's are on the way and I'll update after I get some drive time w them.

    What's your location?

    I feel exactly same with front pads. It is not much of shaking, rather pedal vibration.

    You kidding me!

    Did you notice a steel gray F5 SX around?

    I traded mine 2015 SX (steel gray) for a new 2016 F5 black in McHenry, IL.
    It was back in Nov 2016, though.
