Performance & Racing Brake Pads


Sixty years ago, Raybestos began its long racing tradition by partnering with Indy 500 drivers to sponsor the Safety in Speed award. This started a long heritage of excellence and recognition in the racing world. 

Today, Raybestos offers Professional Racing brake pads and Street Performance brake pads to carry on that tradition. These products are engineered specifically for those that like to put their foot down. When you purchase a Raybestos Racing or Performance brake pad, you are receiving a product that embodies safety in speed. 

Raybestos now offers a performance and racing website dedicated to these products and niche markets. 


Raybestos Street Performance brake pads are specifically designed for demanding drivers in the street performance market.

The performance market has long lacked a pad that offers excellent performance under extreme driving conditions while still operating with low noise. As innovators in the automotive aftermarket, Raybestos has put in the time to develop a pad to fill this void from R&D to engineering to manufacturing.

The performance line covers high-performance domestic and import passenger applications, including: 

  • Chevy
  • Ford

  • Audi
  • BMW
  • Cadillac
  • Mazda
  • Porsche
  • Infiniti
  • Nissan
  • Honda
  • and Many More!
