Had the Brushed Aluminum GT's, now....

They're greyish black up front and just plain dingy in the back (yes, I know I need to wash it more)

I've heard that different pads will reduce the brake dust that builds up on the wheels...

is it true, and which ones?

I hear Ceramic are real good that way, but they might not have as much braking power, I guess its a trade off?

Solution... just never use your brakes!!! LOL

I've heard that a "High Performance" Brake pad will reduce dust. I've been searching the net to see if I can find you an article, but no luck yet

why would you want to mess with your brake bads? i guess i don't get it. brake dust is something that's not on m list of priorities i guess.

Spray a little detailer on your wheels every few days and just wipe it off, lol.
