StopTech Street Performance rear brake pads are designed for high-performance street drivers who want a high-quality and capable pad that won't break the wallet. These pads feature an innovative composite compound that is quiet, great bite and modulation, low fade under hard street-type use (and autocross, light track). We've tried these pads and love how capable they were when used hard but also how easy they were for regular stop-and-go driving. This might be the last brake pad you will ever need!

Position: both rear calipers (should only be combined with StopTech Street Performance front pads).

These pads were originally equipped on the E39 M5, E46 M3, and Z4 M models. Owners of the E39 M5 and E46 M3 will know that the stock pads are already quite 'aggressive' from the factory with a lot of initial bite. The initial bite was built into the pad to stop criticism of BMW's lack of 'performance' brakes. Instead of building the M models with exotic - and expensive - multi-piston calipers, BMW engineers turned up the braking power in their pads. For the street, these are excellent brake pads with excellent feel and performance. The only downside is the dust that comes from an organic pad. The problem with many aftermarket and OEM pads is that they do not match the same level of initial bite as the stock OE BMW pads. This can make the brakes feel 'weak' and 'numb' even though the pads are working properly. If you want to maintain your braking feel, these are the best to use.

Although these pads were originally designed for M cars, they fit other models as well, making them a great first-step upgrade for better braking.

Price is for one set of pads - enough to replace the pads on both rear calipers.

These rear pads fit the following BMWs:
1999-2006 E46 BMW 330i 330ci 330xi M3

Centric Posi Quiet Brake pads surpass the braking performance of stock pads but do it with far less dust. This semi-metallic pad compound is very easy to use on the street with excellent feel and initial bite and low noise. But the best thing we like with these pads is how little dust they produce. You will be amazed at how little dust there is on your wheels after a week of use. These are a great replacement pad for fans of the discontinued PBR Metal Master Pads.

Position: both rear calipers (should only be combined with Posi Quiet front pads).

The RSL29 pad is an endurance racing compound with long life and great wear characteristics. It has stable friction over a broad temperature range which makes them a very easy to use and predictable braking pad in a lot of environments. An evolution of the RSL19 endurance pad designed for more advanced drivers. This compound combines the outstanding wear rate of the RSL19 with a slightly higher coefficient of friction and initial bite. RSL29 also features improved hot fade resistance over the RSL19. In addition to the endurance racing, this pad will also be found in GT and VLN classes and Touring Cars (including our own E46 World Challenge cars). BMW has been using Pagid Yellow pads on their Nurburgring test vehicles and Ring Taxi for years.

This is the set of REAR pads.

A high-performance street pad with much-improved braking performance and without the levels of dust from a factory pad. The Street 5.0 pads are perfect for drivers who don't want an ordinary replacement pad and want something that will hold up during aggressive street driving. The Street 5.0 pads are similar to the established Hawk HPS pads but with more initial bite. While the HPS pads fill the need of a direct replacement OEM-type pad, the Street 5.0 kicks braking performance into the next gear. With the Street 5.0 pads you can expect:
  • Better stopping power even when the pads are cold
  • Good initial bite (more than on Hawk HPS)
  • Excellent resistance to fade during street use
  • Moderate dust during normal street driving
  • Quiet operation
  • Easy on rotors

This pad set includes pads for both REAR brakes.

    The Hawk HT10 compound combines the high torque levels of the aggressive Hawk Blue with a revised friction compound that makes it easier to modulate and wears nicer on rotors. The HT10 remains consistent over a wide range of temps and can even work when cold. It's been a popular pad for racers looking for the performance of a Hawk Blue but is not as harsh on rotors.

    Features and Characteristics:
    + very high torque performance
    + high temp range
    + up to 1300*F
    + mild abrasive metallic content does not require high heat to work
    + excellent modulation at high temps+ a 'friendly and easy' pad to use

    Hawk Blue racing pads are among the most aggressive track pads on the market. The formula for the friction material ensures a high level of braking performance especially at elevated temperatures. Hawk Blue pads have been a favorite of club racers for over a decade. Few pads can match their torque output at race temps. These pads do not work well when cold and will be abrasive to your rotors.

    Features and Characteristics:
    + very high friction / torque performance
    + medium temp range
    + up to 1000*F
    + abrasive metallic content that requires heat
    + good, predictable modulation at high temps

    Hawk's HP Plus pads fill the need for a "dual-purpose" pad - offering acceptable street performance that also holds up well on the racetrack. The beauty of these pads is that you can put them on at home or your shop and use them to drive to and from the track, with a full day of on-track driving in between. While these track pads actually do work on the street, noticeable increases in noise, dust, and brake wear are to be expected. These pads are great for the weekend track junkie who wants exceptional street performance while also having a capable pad on the track. They are excellent for novice and first-time drivers while also being a favorite of instructors too. And they are inexpensive compared to most full race pads.

    These are not all-out racing pads, however, and they work best when used within their temperature range (100-800*F). Higher friction levels and brake temps will increase wear, especially on heavier cars. Brake cooling kits are strongly recommended. If you find these pads are not lasting, or you are exceeding their performance capability, it will be time to step into a full, dedicated track/racing pad.

    These Rear Hawk HP Plus Pads fit the following BMWs:
