If you have factory pads (PAGID or JURID) then you are in Brake Dust City. I use PBR/AXXIS and have no dust problems.

I thought I was the only one here cleaning my wheels every night. I noticed my front wheels get more dust than my rear wheels. (Actually I used to think that it was the NYC streets that made them dirty but my girl's dad drives a 2004 Mercedes s55 and he's an MD so he washes his car like once every 6 months and his AMG rims are ALWAYS polished.)

Anyway LOOK at my rims!! I spend about 30-40 mins washing, brushing & polishing those things. If I only knew before I got them.

What really sucks is that I just paid the dealership 280$ for new pads when I took my car in for servicing last July! ghead

I wish I'd read this post before!


I'm also looking for advice on "better than OEM" brake pads and calipers.

There is a spray that I bought for my friends Crown Victoria (Brake Dust magnet) and works great. It doesnt allow the brake dust to stick onto the rims. I got from Autozone or Advance Auto parts. Cant remember what its name was but just ask someone at the store.

I found that cleaning my wheels with "greased Lightning" cleaner/degreaser kept the dust off longer than using ordinary wheel cleaner (of which I tried almost every brand). Only when i ran out of actual wheel cleaner did I try the degreaser and notice that the accumulation on the rims was less between cleanings...give it a try before you run out and buy new pads...can't hurt
