Hey guys!

Need to change my brakes rotors and pads on my 2009 TSX. I was thinking of upgrading from the OEM sets to something more performing/best quality but don't know a lot about brakes compagnies. I was thinking about the EBCs ultimax with hawk pads. What do you guys think? Would you rather go with something else??... in the same price range? I tend to do a lot of agressive decelerations on my way to work (looooots of deers on highway) and I need something that won't overheat/bent to easly.

I'm also planning to get EBC Ultimax but with Project Mu pads. Hawk pads will good as well. Possibly take a look into EBC Red stuff pads

Hit up Marcus at He can hook you up with an HT-Spec brake package to suit your needs and budget. I have their Stage 3 brake package with Racing Brake 2 Piece open slot rotors up front and slotted rotors in the rear with ET500 pads all around. By far the best upgrade I've done. He's also a member of

Hey tbcop, Stoptech or EBC products would both be great choices, I have had a lot of success from both companies, I always get Stoptech slotted rotors to knock the heat away and usually go with EBC Red pads for my personal vehicles. Those 2 combined are the best brake combination i have tried yet!
I'm thinking about going wtih adams rotors to replace the stock size with some rotors with more grip. As for pads either some posiquiets or ebc.
