Brembo Brake Pads

Monday, January 4, 2010 by Tire Rack Team


In 1961, Brembo took the brake market with their knack for design, development and production. To this day, they lead the industry with racing and aftermarket brake components and systems—which is why Brembo brakes appear as Original Equipment components on some of the world's finest passenger cars from the likes of BMW, Porsche, Ferrari and more.

In addition, Brembo brake pads have helped a variety of racing teams (from Formula 1 to CART, NASCAR, FIA World Rally and Superbike organizations) take home the coveted checkered flag.

This level of performance satisfaction is available to you as well. Whether you want to improve your current braking system, or possibly upgrade to an enhanced aftermarket package, Brembo can help. Just search Tire Rack's inventory of brake components by vehicle to see which Brembo products are right for you.

Many BMW owners find their wheels covered in brake dust after only a couple hundred miles of driving. Waxing your wheels can help, but a better solution to consider is installing a set of replacement ceramic brake pads, like the Hawk Performance Ceramic pads

While they do not have quite the level of initial 'bite' as the OE pads, they produce noticeably less dust and a lighter colored dust. I use these pads on my 1995 BMW M3 along with Brembo rotors and I love them.
