I have a chance to buy used Hawk brake pads for my '88GT.
I'm worried that they would wear my rotors in an odd way since they already have a wear pattern for other rotors.
Should I pass on them and just buy new Hawks?

Used pads. That is just sounding a little gross to me.

No matter how complicated something is or seems, always start with the simple basics then work your way to the rocket science !!!

I have used some used pads before. Just run the friction surfaces across the concrete (to remove the glaze) a little bit and put 'em in. Let 'em seat in and your good to go.

They claim to have only 1000 miles on them. Hawk pads, for those of you who don't know, are very high quality pads and much better than the regular counter part store pads.
