Re: Need help, too much break dust

it's the brembo pads....they make a lot of brake dust. ceramic pads don't produce as much. but in my opinion the brembos have the best stopping power but i got tired of cleaning my wheels so i plastidipped my wheels black....haven't washed wheels in months....you could also powdercoat or paint wheels black....

Re: Need help, too much break dust

I did the Hawk High Performance Street 5.0 pads on my '15 and could not be happier. The initial "bite" isn't quite the same as the stock pads, but after that, the difference is negligible in street use, IMO. But, the difference in dust is night and day. Part numbers are: HB649B.605 front and HB194B.570 rear. Awesome pads.

Is it necessary to do front and rear or can I just do the fronts? I've got no dust issue on the rears but the fronts are a disaster.

You can do the fronts not and the rears later don't matter too much more importaint to do them before the rototrs are all gouged up and have oodles of miles on em.

The pads also perform best once they heat up street use will not yield the best perfomance altho they are a good daily pad they perform best when heated.
