For what's readily available, I am trying Hawk HP PLUS on the fronts and HPS on the rear. I actually prefer to run the same pad front/rear but the HP+ is not available for the rear.

My brake setup will be as follows:
Castrol SRF brake fluid
Hawk HP+ front
Remove front brake dust shields
Hawk HPS rear
I have run Endless 72ís and HP+. 72ís are the best street pad as they are not noisy and not especially noisy and they are somewhere between HPS and HP+ in terms of stopping power. Never ran them at the track always swapped in HP+ for the track. They were more aggressive than the 72ís but are noisy and dusty. HP+ served me well at track
