Hawk HPS 5.0 Brake Pads (1990)


Hawk’s HPS 5.0 pad is an updated compound based on their popular HPS pads. They produce less dust and noise than Aston Martin’s OEM Pagid pads but can still handle track duty in cars with the larger 380mm brake rotors. These are a great brake pad for people that drive aggressively, and for people that do track days and don’t want to bother with dedicated track pads.

They do have more brake dust than the Porterfield R4-S but I think it’s a reasonable amount, and the Hawk HPS 5.0 pads can handle abuse beyond the capabilities of the Porterfield R4-S. With proper installation and bedding-in, the HPS 5.0 does not squeal.

Important Notes

Sold as a set of four pads: two for each caliper, which is enough for both front calipers.

I highly recommend only using matching brake pads. That is, if you need to replace your front pads and want to use a different type than the outgoing ones, you should replace all the pads with the same type, even if the rear pads are still okay.

CCM Rotors: These pads are not suitable for cars with CCM rotors.

Wear Sensors: These brake pads do accommodate the brake pad wear sensors.

Fitment Guide

2012-2018 V8 Vantage / S / GT, front*
2010-2018 Rapide / S, front
2018+ DB11, non-CCM rotors, front
2019+ Vantage (AM6), non-CCM rotors, front

* 2012 was a transition year for the V8 Vantage. The V8 Vantage switched to a 6-piston front brake system which uses these pads. Prior to that change, the car used 4-piston front calipers and these pads do not fit that setup.
