BMW Fitments: 3 Series
Race pads with smooth initial bite, slight friction rise with temperature, and excellent release and modulation characteristics
Performance Friction race pads have been the pad of choice for the BimmerWorld IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Team since we tested our first set back in our World Challenge days. The fact is, Performance Friction race pads take home more championships per year than any other pad brand on the market, and those same pads are available to you.
PFC’s 08 compound has gained a well-earned following in endurance, sportscar, and GT racing due to its performance in applications where exceptional wear rates and smooth initial bite are a must. The 08 race pads have a slight friction rise as temperature increases, excellent release and modulation characteristics, and very low abraded disc wear. On top of the excellent overall performance, the 08 compound has the longest wear rate of all PFC pads.
The mission of Performance Friction is to provide the optimal pad compound for each application that they make. Rather than the “shotgun” method of developing every pad in every compound, PFC builds the correct pad to suit the venue it is designed for.

NOTE on Street Use - These are race and track-use pads. While they can be driven on the street, and many of our customers choose to drive to and from events with them, they are designed for ultimate track performance and their street manners may not meet everyone's demands. If you are looking for a street-worthy race pad, these 08 compounds have the lowest wear rates and noise of the PFC race pads.
