no. hawk are considered best if you want oem type performance with lots more dust. if you want cold bite and dont plan to use the car on a track or do long downhill runs where heavy repetitive braking will occur, stock pads are pretty good. Stoptech street performance are also great for spirited driving and heavy street use and even weekend track use on a stock or close to stock car. they give up a little bit of cold bite, but its almost not noticeable unless you think about it. they also have a nice linear modulation and can take more heat than hawk HP+/S pad by a long shot. dusting is more than stock but less than a track pad or hawk HP+ in my experience. There are lots of other pads that fit your bill, like the DS2500, but they all have compromises in one area or another.

Why are you upgrading your pads, anyway? what were the stock pads falling short of? this info will be helpful in finding a pad that will meet your needs without causing excess noise, dusting, cost, etc.
