Default Where can I buy brake pads local here in Perth?

I'm after some pads that have that racecar squeal. Hawk HPS or A1RM... Open to suggestions. Where can I buy them locally though? Thanks

Why the fuck do you want pads that squeal?

And I second what Bram said those pads are shit, probably ok for the street but wouldn't use them at the track. Ring local performance shops. MMS and TMS always keep pads in stock. Mao at EvoR also.

Well because everytime I hear a modded car with custom pads pull up next to me at the lights it's just like the coolest thing ever. It's a poser thing but I love it. I love the mechanical experience. Even hearing it squeal when I brake from inside the car I enjoy it. And i'm not talking about like standard high pitch squeal. I'm talking about the deep squeal that you get from racecars.

If its just for posing, take the pads out and spin them around.



Brake squeal shits me to tears.

Haha fucking hell!

You will get sick of it soon enough, the squeal on my pads stops me from even bothering to start my car if I'm not off to give it a flogging somewhere. Just about the most annoying sound sound ever.

Enjoy your lack of cold bite, excessive rotor wear, and concerned looks from the general public who think your car is fucked for the sake of posing though.

Winmax 3's at the rear for the win, and the squeal.
