Default Brake Dust

GOSH DARN IT I HATE BRAKE DUST! Every time i clean the wheels and get them shiny and stuff they are covered in dirt and brake dust the next day!


Thanks for allowing me to rant, you may return to your nice day you were having!

Buy some Ceramic pads next time you do your brakes,itll save you a whole bunch of time cleaning your wheels.I had to replace my rotors at 20000 miles because one was warped,so I added some crossdrilled/slotted rotors and ceramic pads.No brake dust!!.Awesome.

Between a good chrome polish/sealer and NAPA ceramic pads. I don't have a break dust problem any more. All I need is a quick rinse and I'm good to go.

Yup. The Top-of-the-line NAPA pads are the Raybestos Ceramic pads - NO DUST. Had them on my '02 - with new rotors (the "better" ones from NAPA) braking was fantastic, too![?]
