I am not sure about the ceramic ones but the HPS's are supposed to be close to OEM when it comes to noise and dust issues yet they perform better and can withstand heat better than OEM. I recommend those for sure, but you should wait until someone with more info on Ceramics chimes in. I believe they produce lesser dust than oem due to being ceramic.

This forum is kind of slow so you might have better luck lookin up on google and Hawk's page on what the differences are.

I personally am running HP+ pads all around. Those are like the track/street pads. Quite noisy and make a lot of dust too, but the stopping power is unbelievable for a stock single piston caliper setup.

Do they fit the OEM brakes, they surely do without any issues as long as you order the right one for your car.

I have the hawk hps pads on stock rotors and I have no complaints. Def felt an improvement over stock pads. And from what I remember HPS was a better choice over ceramic...for my driving situation anyway.

I LOVE my ceramics I dont have hps but my buddy does and they are great. But if you dont like squealing brakes when there is no heat in your brakes these arent for you...

On colder days under 50*F your first 3 stops will feel like you have no brakes until heat gets im them. The way I solve this is to ride the brakes for a few seconds to warm them in the winter. For me its worth it, to you it may not!

I have Hawk Ceramics paired with Powerslot rotors on my Tsx, and 3g TL. They usually do squeak the first time I use them, for a split second, but then all is well. No visible dust at all. Stopping is improved over stock, but I cant compare to the HPS as I havent had a set.
