If it still has the pads that came with the cruiser, yes they are cheap and put out a lot of brake dust. In no time at all, yout chrome wheels (or whatever wheels your have) will turn black with the dust. "Brackes sqick" or brakes squeaking can be caused by a number of different things. Your front pads might be worn down to a point of needing replacement, or you just might have a build-up of brake dust in the rear drums (if you have drum brakes on the rear).

Welcome to the forum.
