Are these OK for street use? I would not plan on using them full time, but would be driving 120 miles each way to and from the track. Basically, do they work well enough to be safe when cold?

I do this routinely. Cold bite is fine. Too loud/screechy for daily driving though.

Yes, it is a race pad so noise is expected, but cold bite and street use are fine.

Any idea when they will be back in stock?

Had these PFC 08 on for about 3 days prior to track day. BEWARE, EXTREMELY LOUD.

They performed quite well on track but I was so happy to put the stock pads back on the next morning. Its so loud, its embarrassing.

Yes, I haven't tried a race pad yet that was quiet.

Proper Bedding Procedure for CarbonMetallic® Brake Pads

All PFC Brake Pads are pre-treated to be race and street ready. This treatment is done in the final step of the manufacturing process when the surface of the friction material is brought up to temperature in order to simulate a bedding cycle. However, proper bedding is still required using your rotors with the new CarbonMetallic® pads. The following process below is suggested in order to achieve the best performance, consistency and durability of the pad.

STEP 1
Gradually get the PFC pads up to temperature. Do not spend a longer time on the brakes than usual because this can create a thermal shock condition within the compound.

STEP 2
Perform several stops with progressively higher pedal pressure and braking force and from higher speeds. You will feel the effectiveness of the brakes increase with each successive brake apply.

STEP 3
Continuing this procedure a few more times is the best way to accomplish the new transfer layer and, due to the higher surface temperatures, will assure a complete removal of the old friction materials from the disc.

STEP 4
The disc should be allowed to cool as much as is practical, with ambient temperature being ideal. Allowing the disc to cool to ambient temperature will increase disc life and performance.

STEP 5
The pads are now properly bedded to provide consistent performance. The pads should be brought back up to the operating temperature range to guarantee optimum braking power. This depends upon the specific compound.
