    I'd appreciate that! let me know when you got some free time, thanks!

    Re: Brake Dust

    I can confirm that this stuff, called Armor All Wheel Protectant, works really well for brake dust.

    Funny thing is that, since the dust doesn't stick to the wheels, some of it gets slung onto the side of the car. But it's way easier to wipe off.

    I tried Armor all Rim Protectant and this stuff works! You spray it on, I wait a few hours till it drys,and its been about a month now and there still clean.

    Re: Brake Dust

    Anyone have experience with the inside pad wearing faster than the outboard pad? I noticed on my car the 'squeak tab' is on the outside pad, but both inside pads are more worn than the outers. I have a feeling that the inside pad could wear to the rivet before the outside pad would begin to squeak.

    Hawk HPS on mine too, I still get dust, but that's because I drive super aggressive and take as much liberty's with my braking abilities as I do with my accleration abilities. I wipe my wheels down nightly.

    Oh yea. Wore the inside of my right rear down to the studs and scored the rotor. Outer had easily 50% still left on it.
