I changed my stock rotors with brembo cross drilled ones a few months ago and i changed the pads to KVR Performance Carbon Fiber Semi-Metallic Brake Pads. I noticed that they produced alot less brake dust.

I did some reading up on the EBC green stuff online and i found alot people weren't happy b/c they either made too much noise or they produced more brake dust then the company said.

I'm happy with the KVR's

Good luck

I have the Raybestos QS pads (ceramic) and they're perfect. Less fade and virtually NO brake dust. I have the polished alluminum coupe rims and they stay very shiny for a couple weeks (my old semi-metalic would get the rims caked in brake dust in a few days), so, yep I highly recomend them.

Brand, Part #, and typical price:
RAYBESTOS, PGD409QS, $60

yeah ill clean my 89 coupes rims and within a week theyre already tainted by brake dust, it pisses me off because i use a tooth brush to get up inbetween the spokes (crevices) and it takes a lot of time. i saw that napa makes a ceramic brake pad... what do u guys think about those?? i might try them out, or the raybestos recommended. and what do u guys use to clean ur rims or polish them. i have the stock aluminum alloy rims with the shiny finish.

I have to clean my rims every 30 or 40 miles... if I wait for 200 or 300 I end up spending like an hour per rim cleaning them... extremely annoying. I have now started to keep a rag to clean the rims after I drive. The dust is much easier to get off if you dont let it sit long (and if it gets wet and then dries good luck)
