Hawk Brake Questions.....

I have a 05 Excursion 6.0 daily driver. I recently lifted it and am running 35x12.50x20 tires. I am wanting to upgrade my brake pads. I have been reading about Hawk brake pads. Seems like most people go with the LTS Hawk pads. What about the SuperDuty Hawk brake pads? They are meant for heavy towing/Fleet but what about my over sized tires and the fact my Excursion is heavy? Would the Hawk LTS still be a better choice??

Here is the info off Hawks website:

Hawk Performance SuperDuty Brake Pads

Recommended Use: Trucks & SUV's doing Moderate to Heavy Towing
Best Suited for Heavy Towing & Vehicles with Over-sized Wheels and Tires
Superduty Pads have Extended Wear Characteristics
Very High Resistance to Brake Fade
Consistent & Reliable Friction Output
Great for Fleet Vehicles as well
Super Duty Pads for Heavy Duty Jobs

Hawk Performance SuperDuty Brake Pads are the toughest of the tough when it comes to a heavy duty brake pads. If you use your vehicle to frequently tow heavy loads, or maybe have over-sized wheels and tires then these pads are the ones for you. The Hawk SuperDuty Brake Pads have a very high resistance to fade, and the compound used for these pads has a heck of a bite.


Hawk Performance LTS Light Truck & SUV Brake Pads

Recommended Use: Trucks & SUV's doing Moderate Towing
Improved Braking Power Compared to Stock
High Resistance To Brake Fade
Produces Less Dust than OEM Pads
Almost Noise Free Operation
Promotes Long Pad and Rotor Life
Specially Formulated for Truck and SUV Applications
Pads Made for Your Truck or SUV

The Hawk Performance LTS Brake Pads are perfect for Trucks and SUV's that occasionally haul moderate sized loads. They are also useful if you have bigger wheels and tires on your ride and have noticed that your stock pads are just not up to the task. The LTS Pads use a specially formulated compound that is made specifically for truck and SUV applications.

Sorry. I have the LTS. Work fine. One side up front has a bit of a squeal around town. A bigger gain came from the Powerslot cryo rotors over the OEM rotors. My buddy has the same exact truck with EBC Yellow pads and rotors and it feels the same as mine. He also has a squeal from one of his fronts.

Frankly, the best increase in braking comes from flushing the hydroboost. I do it periodically and it really brings back brake performance for a while.
