Re: Brake dust problem

Many have, I just did mine on my '14 with Hawk Performance pads HB649B.605 HPS 5.0.
Still had some dust for the first 500 miles, then the dust was greatly reduced.
I also had my dealer change out the front rotors to elimate the squealling (per TSB WK2 05-006-15).

Re: Brake dust problem

I used to have a problem with brake dust until I used this to seal my wheels.

Ultimate Wax Liquid | Meguiar's

Brake dust hardly sticks to the wheels now and I can have them looking like new in seconds using the hose pipe to knock any dust off that did stick.

That being said I do have a set of low dust pads to go in at some point, I bought them before I started using the Hydrophobic Sealer.

Check out the Power Stop Z23 Evolution (1405 for front, 1053 rear). About $100 for F/R combined. Ceramic + carbon fiber mix. A lot of Hellcat owners are using them on their vehicles because the performance is fantastic, they're cheap, and they don't dust! I used them on my 2015 SRT 392 and now on my '14 SRT GC as well.
