"uh... I suggest you use them when needed."

With regard to the Hawks (which I deal with a lot) the Blues are a good choice for non-professional racing. They are a very popular pad for track days and high performance driving events. Blues should be swapped out at the track though, they are not fun as street pads. Blacks are like blues but not as much bite. You'd use them with blues to skew brake bias front or rear, or if you had a realllly light car and had a hard time getting enough heat in the brakes.

Hawk Race Compounds

DTC70/60 > HT14> HT10 > Blue > Black

The top compounds on the food chain are used in professional race cars, so don't feel like you need to get the most hardcore. Blues are great for most people who are not professional racers.

HP+ is a streetable compound that is good for autocross, aggressive for street, and probably not up to the task for an M3 on a road course.

HPS is a very nice street pad.
