Brembo Brake Pads

Anyone put on new front brake pads yet? If so, which did you get and how are they with dust? I have gloss black wheels so the less brake dust, the better.

I could not take the Brembo dust. I went with basic Centric Posi Quiet ceramic pads front and rear with R1 drilled rotors. A great, clean combo for the street.

I use power slot rotors and hawk HPS for street use and HP plus for track use.

And in the rear I have the same 2 pads depending on the use and baer 14 inch 2 piece rotors.

The brembo dust is horrible and it makes my matte black wheels look like ****. If you're mostly using it on the street I highly recommend the hawk HPS pads, quiet, low dust and good stopping power

Even the HPS have a ***** load of dust and on the LS wheel they are made more obvious! If you want to stop in a dime them the dust is a sacrifice you have to make. Lol

I installed the Hawk ceramics last week. They bite better than the stock brembos. I also have gloss black wheels. There is less brake dust but not "ultra low" as advertised. They really smell strong maybe because they are still breaking in?

Your slotted rotors aren't helping the dust any

Did you set them properly? 4 to 5 hard (60-0) stops? If not you will smell them longer from all of the manufacturing chemicals burning off

yeah I followed the directions on the box. The smell has been super strong the last couple days since it's been raining. Its the burnt clutch smell. But it isnt my clutch. def the pads.

Yea right now I'm using it as a DD because my DD motor went. So after cleaning, they stay black for maybe two days and by a week they are matte brown wheels. All street for me. Hawk seems to be the winner here, so I'll have to get some of them. I developed a squeak with no brake on the left side and on both sides when lightly braking so I'm hoping it's just the stock pads sucking. They passed inspection over a month after the squeak started by a good amount so I am praying that this is the issue.

If I had to choose between no squeak and less brake dust, I'm not sure what I want more. I do know that my hand cramps before I get all four wheels clean haha.

Is yours a DD? I'm hoping to get the number of days before having to wash the wheels again up a bit, once a week is a killer.

yep dd. its been raining here but the first two days without rain there was a little dust but not bad. I think they may put off a little more dust in the beginning anyway while they are breaking in. Yeah I was washing mine 1-2 times a week with the stock pads. That sucked.

no bs'ing, go to autozone and get the ceramic pads they sell, cheaper and work great! think they were like 70 or 80 for the fronts. they may not be autocross great, but they feel as good as stock and have little to no dusting.

The c-max pads from autozone are an excellent OEM replacement. I'm not a fan of most autozone products, but those pads are great

And here I was happy with how little dust I got from my Brembos - but then I came from a Focus ST which seemed to get a visit every day from the Brake Dust Fairy.

...you know that if you don't stay on top of keeping these wheels clean in a few years they will look like the steelies on my 24 year old Chevy G10. The paint finish on all these Mustang wheels is the cheapest, poorly applied crap ever, even the Brembo wheels and the GT500s I've seen. Chipping, peeling, staining, they have it all. Anything you can do to keep caustic brake dust off the surface will help extend the meager life of the factory finish.

5LHO, I think you're right: my brembos are a little over a year old and 2 of them are already chipping (I haven't curbed a wheel since I was 16yrs old in my mom's van, and I avoid ****ty roads like the Plague). I'm wondering if I bothered getting the rim warranty when I picked mine up but I can't find that damn paperwork. Might just go ahead and plasti-dip them black (but not sure how that'll work on a black car, might be too different of a shade of black to look nice).

Might be time to start begging the wife for some rims, I dunno.

I like the BBP wheels enough that I will just pony up to have them powder coated when they get too bad to stand any more.

Unless you spend real good money, aftermarket wheels aren't often a lot better for durability of finish.

Autozone Brembo Pads

Sorry if i made the last post to short.
My car came with Brembo Set. I dont need the racing set up.
On Auto Zone web sight I did not see a number for Auto Zone pads for the Brembo pads. Please share the part number for that direct cross over.
I have a 2013 Mustang GT. / . Brembo Front brakes / Reg. Rear Brakes.

Thank You

Sure confused. I hear everyone complaining about brake dust but I have none. I was my car every week and clean and polish my rims. Doesn't everyone else?

Or is it your daily driver and putting on 300-500 miles every week, the dust accumulates.

Currently my DD cause my DD motor blew. It's more dust than I've ever accumulated in a week's time though. The wheels are brown after two or three days

After I cleaned the wheels real fell I put 2 coats of wolfgang sealant on and now they wash off much easier than before,collonite is also a great protection wax.
