    Yup, normal... some have done ceramic coatings to make it easier, and some crazies just take the wheels off to scrub them out every other day...

    It's normal.. Sucks ass, but unfortunately it's the price of admission. Keep your eyes open, EBC is coming out with their Red pads that will all but eliminate the dust. I've got a guy on the inside and trying to work with them for us to a group buy once they're available.

    I'm interested, with a couple of questions:

    1. Will they have the inital bite the OEM pads have?
    2. Will they be street/track suitable like the OEM pads, or street only?
    3. How hard will they be on the rotor? I'm good with changing soft pads more often if it means greater rotor life.


    Thanks,
    Chris

    Blows my mind. Chemical guys make these awesome soft brushes that reach inside the wheels for cleaning. Easy

    I'd love to know the answers to these as well. I'm ready to not have to clean the wheels so often.

    I have a set of Wheel Woolies and one of those Speed Master wheel brushes. They certainly make it a lot faster/easier, but I still hate having SO much brake dust. Keep an eye out for Auto Fanatic (check him out on YouTube if you're not familiar). He's about to release a wheel cleaner that'll clean up all that brake dust WITH NO WIPING OR BRUSHES NEEDED and is perfectly safe for the wheel AND caliper finishes. I'm going to buy a case of this stuff when he releases it!

    I just looked it up. Looks good and I’m also interested. I was thinking of getting a small power washer and a spray wand for foam wash.

    I in the "absolutely never use a power washer on your car" camp, but if you're gonna anyway, don't use high pressure on the wheels, lest you drive water into the bearings.

    I have a Chemical Guys foam cannon that I really like, which I use with their Fat Foam (also goes in my soap bucket). I blast foam all over the car and the wheels, then go in and prep my two buckets while it soaks, then wash and dry.

    Same deal only I use Adam's Polishes foam cannon and soap and in between I go with their dry wash.

    If I'm going to a show or an event I carry Chemical guys spray detailer safe for coated surfaces. I can wipe them clean pretty quickly that way. I had my wheels ceramic coated hoping it would help and it does not. I also use the brush mentioned below it really makes cleaning the barrels much easier.
    They say "The third time's the charm"...waiting on replacement car #2 (will be my third try at an acceptable GT350 build). 2020 Shadow Black, technology package, handling package, exposed carbon fiber dash, custom blue calipers and custom painted center wheel caps.
