Porterfield R4-S Street Brake Pads

from 75.00

Pads for the DB11 and New Vantage are coming soon! They’re currently in manufacturing and I expect to have them by the end of September. Orders for DB11 and New Vantage brake pads will ship once the inventory is received.

If you're using your car for normal or spirited driving and want the best dust-free pads around, look no further than the Porterfield R4-S. These pads have an absurdly low level of dust and are incredibly quiet, making them ideal for someone that doesn't need to worry about aggressive driving or track days.

The product image comparing the new R4 pad to the used R4-S pad show show heavily chamfered the R4-S is. The chamfering ensures the R4-S pads are smooth and silent, but reduces the surface area of the pad. While this is design is ideal for street use, the reduced surface area limits this pad's ability to handle track duty.

A great way to handle both easy street driving and hardcore track days is to have a set of both the R4-S and R4 pads, and swap between as needed for street and track use.

Important Notes

These pads are not suitable for brakes with carbon/CCM rotors.

Please read my blog post about reduced initial bite when using these pads. The effect is more pronounced on the DB11 and New Vantage, but it generally applies to the DB9 and V8 Vantage as well.

I highly recommend only using matching brake pads. That is, if you need to replace your OEM front pads and want to use the R4-S pads, you should replace all the pads, even if the OEM rear pads are still okay.
