Most aftermarket modders focus their attention on upgrades that will make their Challengers go faster, but a smart modder knows that stopping power can be just as important. It may not be as sexy as a nitrous kit or a turbocharger, but brake pads can have a significant impact on performance, too. Our selection of 2008-2023 Challenger brake pads makes it simple to upgrade your stopping power.
Each time you brake, you're sending all that energy and momentum into the brake pads, and that's energy and momentum you'll have to recover. If your brake pads work more efficiently, less energy is wasted, and you can get moving again faster. So what brakes work best for your Challenger? It depends on your style of driving.
If you're commuting or driving around town in your Challenger, OE-replacement pads will do the trick. They're economical, safe and quiet, plus they don't produce a lot of dust, which will keep your chariot looking pristine.
Ceramic brake pads can be a little noisier, but they offer a lot in return. With them installed on your Challenger, you'll notice less fade, increased bite and much faster recovery times. What's more, they'll produce little dust, so they're a fantastic option if you drive your Challenger around town but also like to open it up at times.
If the track and the drag strip are more your thing, you can throw noise and dust considerations out the window. Heavy-duty semi-metallic pads or dedicated racing pads will be loud and dirty, but they boast the insane stopping you'll need to take the checkered flag.
We sell front and rear pads separately so you can buy what you need to replace. Or, if you want to do them all at once, we offer complete kits, as well.
Brake pads sit right on the frontline in the war against not being able to stop. Those poor, hard-working pads have to do the toughest, dirtiest job: converting forward motion into heat, lots and lots of heat. Brake pads make the ultimate sacrifice in slowing your Dodge Challenger down, eventually wearing down so there isn’t enough pad left to work properly. Then, it’s time to install a set of new pads. If your brakes are due for fresh pads or even if they’re not worn out but you need higher performance levels, we’re glad to help with our range of Challenger brake pads. All brake pads are not made alike. The stock pads are excellent for basic use, but a lot of owners want more out of their brakes, except for the dust. Nobody wants more brake dust. We want no brake dust, right? With the industry’s top brake pad makers, you can enjoy the benefits of the latest sophisticated manufacturing and materials. Advanced modern brake pad compounds let you enjoy a higher friction coefficient from the same size of pad, for much more powerful braking, as well as lower noise and dust levels. That means your Challenger can hoon around safely, slowing or stopping reliably with little or none of the noise you might be expecting from high-performance braking systems. At the same time, they’ll produce less of that nasty dusty that can cover up beautiful brakes and alloy wheels, eventually damaging the finish on expensive rims if you don’t clean them regularly. The best stopping power is available from our extra thick metallic and ceramic pads. Many are OEM replacements, meaning you can use them with your stock rotors. For maximum braking performance, you’ll want to check out our aftermarket rotors, which provide optimized performance with matched pads.
