Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

Hi Guys,
My beast both front wheels get dirty very easily than the rear ones. Are they normal?

Re: Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

The brembo brakes put off a lot of brake dust. Just a side effect of the high performance. The front brakes on any car do the most work and they will put off the most dust. Along with being larger...

Unfortunately what you are seeing is normal. Some people have swapped out to other brands like hawk performance pads. These will decrease the amount of brake dust considerably.

Re: Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

Hey CLStech - Do you know which Hawk pads to go with? I saw a few strings but did not clarify, except stay away from ceramic. I think Scottina06 opted for Stoptech on rear...

Thanks.

Re: Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

I went with the performance ceramic version of these.

HB649Z.605

I will say that they dust a bit more than normal ceramics, but brake feel is still ok. I went to German Racewars and they did not have a long way to slow down and I was fine. I don't track my SRT often, but I think it would be fine. Either way it is just about what you want out of your brakes. The PC dust less than the HPS, but the HPS stops close to factory.

Re: Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

These are 'new' and I just put them on - the dust level is dramatically reduced and good stopping power when you get on them

Re: Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

I have used Hawk Ceramics for the past 3+ years with zero issues. Ceramic dfoes have a softer feel than OEM but you soon get used to it. And almost NO dust

DCRSRT, where did you source them from?

Re: Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

Is it okay to just replace the fronts and leave the rear factory?

That's how mine is. Just make sure you install the pad correctly, they are symmetrical, and everything will bolt right back up if the pad is backwards.

Sorry been away for a week. Got mine from Amazon, but any brake specialist can order them in for you.

I only did the fronts too. The rears don't do much of the braking so hardly any dust from them anyway.
