I have Axxis pads on the 540. The lack of brake dust is amazing--none at all. The only problem is that the stopping power is decreased. The brakes also fade quickly under heavy use. Not a pad for consistent spirited driving.

Then why do they make them for BMW's?

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

Thumbs up

I'm with gotKRAUT - Wheel Wax works great! Use it about once a month and brake dust isn't a problem.

I used Wheel Wax for the first time on my new 335i sport and it has done a great job. It makes washing off the brake dust quick and easy. It takes very little time to apply.

Applying pam on tire

Applying 'pam' on the tire is not trustworthy, whereas applying wax on tire not only resist dust and other harmful elements but also protect them from UV light that break down the tire surface.

No wax,use BDR (Brake Dust Repellent) by CSI, go to BDR - Brake Dust Repellent ??Cleans & Protects Wheels. Stuff works great!!! If you're going to use wax, make sure is a specific wheel wax as they do get very hottt, and regular car wax is going to melt(?) right off...messy?
