Hi guys,

does anyone know if any company has developed brake pads for the sedan?

or does the Forte share the same brake pad with any of its predecessors within KIA?

Been looking around for better brake pads and steel braided hoses rather than changing the entire set of brakes..

appreciate any advice....:)

Yes EBC does. I'm sure Hawk will have soon, ATE some others.

As for SS brake line kits, None in North America currently. GoodridgeUSA says they do not plan on adding Forte. In Korea, some performance shop put together an Earls SS kit...Kspec wants $249usd.

Your Kia brake pads are steel braking plates accountable to supply friction with the pad to make the braking or stopping possible. They are mounted between the brake calipers and the brake rotors in order to take in heat and energy so as to provide enough grip to stop your vehicle. In disc brake applications, for each disc rotor are found. They are held in place and activated by the brake caliper attached to a wheel hub.

i think he wanted to know if there was aftermarket pads available, im pretty sure he knows what brake pads are, lol and idk if thats steal on there, dont they use graphit compounds now a day? i know they used to use asbestos, but then all the mechanics were dying from lung cancer lol

The stopping power on KIA is very impressive actually, they beat out all competitors in its class for stopping / breaking power. Changing the default setup might not improve things - they are pretty great as they are.

Agreed. Initial bite on the stock setup is pretty amazing. Almost too much really. Almost went through the windshield the first time. Then my wife drove it, almost put me through the windshield.

I don't know about high temp fade performance yet but, I expect good things. I don't really know what most people expect from brakes, as I see them putting on "high performance" stuff for reasons I don't understand. My Focus brakes were fine for trackdays until I put the turbo on.
