Rotor/Pads Compatibility

1042 Views 14 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  ThatOneGuy93

I've been going back and forth on replacement front brakes and was planning to swap to CX-9 calipers/rotors/pads for the 2 pot calipers and because Hawk has HPS pads for the CX-9 but not the 6.

Looking at other options, Hawk offers pads for the CX-5, and the rotors from Hawk for the CX-5 and 6 are the same do CX-5 pads fit the 6? If rotors are the same, I would be surprised if the calipers were that different.

Looking at the specs of the EBC pads I currently have vs the Hawk pads look like this:

EBC Pads:

140 x 60 x 15.5mm

Hawk HPS pads for CX-5:

142 x 61 x 16mm

On Hawk's website, the HTC5390 rotor is listed as compatible for both cars.

Heck, I'm running Z17s and love them. They've given me plenty of life and have more than enough stopping power. I can only imagine the Z23s being that much better.
