Smile Brake Pads??

Galfer aftermarket pads or stock pads anybody??? I called a motorsports store yesterday to order a set of galfer "HH" pads supposedly very good and he told me that despite all the hype about aftermarket pads that stock ones are way better and all the street racers use them???????

Any opinions

I would go with the Galfer or EBC HH sintered brake pads.

But that may change now that I know all the street racers use the stock suzuki pads.

+1 on the EBC's, they are way better than stock. As soon as the pads bite in, you know it. Havent tried galfer, so no input there.

LOL, no. I would suggest a good set of sintered HH pads before the factory, but it's a preference thing. Different pads achieve optimum operating temperature at different temperature ranges, and their compounds will offer more or less bite. My suggestion to you would be to try the Galfer or EBC's and decide for yourself which one you like. I don't think you'd go wrong either way, but if you don't try them for yourself, you'll always be relying on other peoples opinions (that may be dead wrong). I hope this helps!
