Every time you replace pads with any German brand you will be forever
cleaning your front wheels. All that black brake dust from all the graphite
in Pagid and all the others will mandate jugs of wheel cleaner. Next time
try "Rotex Gold" pads which have no black brake dust. I got mine from
coximport.com delivered for $56.30! Ihaven't cleaned the front wheels on my
124 body Mercedes in two weeks and they are still clean. P.
Oh I have been blackless since 1995... I uses Axxis MetalMaster... it takes
about a month and half to halfway blacken your wheels.
You don't need to get special pads nowdays... you can get a dustless one
from your local store... Raybestos QS ceramic pads... I haven't tried it yet
because I really believes in Axxis stuff.
I'll put a good word in on the Rotex pads as well. I replaced the pads on
my M-class with them and have had *no* brake dust at all. The only downfall
is that they are made from very hard material which tends to be a little
noisy and will likely wear out the rotors before the pads. Otherwise,
stopping ability seems improved over OEM's, they have lasted much longer,
and my wheels stay clean.
