Haven't change the pads, but this seems to help:

Please explain the difference between brake dust and particles from the powder coating system. I'm not familiar with this system. Thanks.

Re: Brake Dust / New Pads

Actually I find the absolute best way to repel brake dust is to thoroughly clean your wheels, make sure they're completely dry, and apply a fair amount of wax. Apply one to three coats of wax and you should have far better results than the armorall products. Just my two cents from back when I detailed cars.

Re: Brake Dust / New Pads

The one that was talked about in this thread will not hurt chrome. I've used it on chrome myself. Biggest mistake I ever made, dulled the shine, and took FOREVER to remove.

Like I explained, I find if you just spend a little more money and get some wax, you'll be much happier.

You said the ones here do not damage chrome, but how come you used them and dulled your wheels' shine ?

Re: Brake Dust / New Pads

Well it doesnt damage them, the stuff just leaves a thin layer of film on top your wheel. (a film that you probably couldnt see with non chrome rims) It smears and looks bad, then eventually when you hate the smear look you try to take the armorall off and thats a very non-enjoyable experiance.

Re: Brake Dust / New Pads

Yeah, I've got that film on my rims after trying out that product. Hasn't come off yet, but I haven't tried too hard for fear of damaging the finish.
