Default Brake pads with low dust 88-90 GT

The pads I have, put a brown dust on my GT wheels only after a few short trips (maybe junky pads) , after a sunday drive..This dust is very difficult to remove from rough clear coat, in the hard to reach pockets.

I am looking for a low dust pad, that others have used and know works that will not destroy my factory disks. In addition, I am looking for a cleaner that works, that will get this dust off the wheel...
thanks

Thay all have some sort of dust as a byproduct....EBC claims they have pads that cure brake dust. I use plain old dish soap and a long bristle brush to get the dust off, those spray and wash types use acids to dissolve the metal in the dust but can cause spots on your pavement and are harmful to pets and plants as well.

Welcome to Turbine wheel ownership, I'll be your moderator.

Gee, my 10 Holes clean up in seconds with garden hose and kitchen sponge.

Hi Chris,

Is that what the problem is?

I know that you state this half-jokingly. But I can vouch for what you mean. My 1988 Mustang GT has the original factory stock wheels. And, for some reason, they always looked "dirty". Even when I don't use the car (when it is in long-term storage, etc.), they still look dirty.

NO, the problem here is that of having so much manufactured into a brake pad these days. I have three cars and all have the same dirt film on them in about 3 to 4 days after I wash them. Most pads are simi metalic and have other compounds in them that break down and turn into dust. That dust is free to go where ever it wants. Years ago full wheel covers made it hard to see until you had to remove the cover to take the wheels off. Pollution, rubber, compounds in the tire and just about anything else on the road winds up on rims as well as your car. Its a very dirty enviroment to drive a clean car in.
