    I've been following Matt Moreman from Obsessed Garage's wheel cleaning routine. It sucked buying all the products at first but honestly my wheels have never been cleaner or easier to maintain once his routine is adopted. The only variance in my process is Hyde's Serum Rust Stopper to prevent the flash rust on the rotors. It works perfectly for me and I don't have to clean the wheels again after applying the brakes.

    The only recommendation I have is investing in a deionized water system if you have even slightly hard water. Using a drying aid (detail spray etc) and a quality towel had been working for me so far and I was having a hard time buying into the hype of the CR spotless system. The limitations were having to wash only on cloudy days, early morning or late evening, and the time consuming process of safely drying a car. The CR spotless system eliminated all of those issues for me lol. It works exactly as advertised. I can wash in direct sunlight, any time of day, cuts the overall wash time in half or better, and I can pull the car into the garage after rinsing and walk away with ZERO water spots. I still take the time to apply a quick detailer but now it's just for the extra shine and not to dry. So the process is still much less time consuming. I went with the wall mount unit DIW-20.

    I recently installed Power Stop carbon fiber ceramic pads. After 200 miles of city driving there is no visible dust, no noise, and they stop great.

    I put G-Loc GS1 street pads on my 2018 back in January 2019 w/1013miles. 6000+ miles later and still very pleased. Still stops the same, bites hard and minimal dust. They cost more then power stop but they cost about the same as an OEM replacement set.

    I washed my car today for the first time since installing Powerstop pads. Whereas before I would have rivers of pad material running off the wheels and staining my driveway, today there was nothing. I didn't even have to use wheel cleaner. I sprayed the wheels with the same CarPro Ech2o rinseless wash I cleaned the car with and they came out fantastic. They actually have a subtle gloss as a result of the CarPro which they never had before, despite the fact that they had been coated with CQuartz when the body was coated with Modesta three years ago.

    Solved the brake dust problem with Power Stop pads on my 15 Corvette and 13 Boss 302.
    Will go to them on my 19 GT350 if dust becomes a problem.
