Default brake pads

Hi Guys,

I plan on changing my brake pads and would like something with more bite. I'm currently using organics. What is the best option here and where to get them ?

Semi metallic, like the vendors recommend, places catering to vettes.....

I went ahead and bought Hawk street pads. Went through Vette Brake and products.
No mentioning on them being in backorder. Order was out some 2 weeks now and still nothing. What a bad service.

I dunno about shipping to your nation, but I tend to order my China made parts from Rock Auto.....at least the rotors said machined in USA on them....

and yes, semi metallic pads......I never had any luck with organics.....
