Hawk HPS 5.0 is a good choice for street only use.
Nothing will beat a lower temp range track pad (ex, carbotech xp8) for stopping power and fade resistance on the street, but they are noisy and very dusty. I wouldn't recommend them for everyday use unless you enjoy cleaning wheels often.
Usually if you change to a different type of pad, you want to get a new rotor as well so you can properly bed the brakes and not worry about incompatible compounds.
