    Braking seems a tad better over stock pads.

    Just got a V eh?

    Had brake dust black wheels for 2 years now - they reflect less radar.

    Go with Hawk Pads and you'll never see brake dust again.
    Well, never is a strong word. Let me just say, you'll see a HUGE difference.

    Does anyone use ceramic pads on their V? There shouldn't be much brake dust with thos either.

    Re: Brake Dust

    OEM pads = dust = pads wearing rotors wearing.
    Hawk pads dust = rotors wearing?
    Just wanted to know before I put 'em on. The freakin' dust is killin' me....I think the EPA is watchin' me.
