<< Hey y'all,
I just wanted to ask. I know a few of you (Eric, PDQSHIP) are
ng the Cool Carbon brake pads. I just got a set and was wondering about the
rbon fiber brake dust. I have heard some reports of them ruining the
n thier wheels. Is this true? And, what do I need to do to make sure this
s not happen to me? Should I wax my wheels? And, I figure the best thing
o is to make sure that I do not let too big of an accumulation of brake dust
t on the wheels and just hose them off every two weeks or so. Any input.
Yes, definitely clean them often... Esp in the winter months.... The dust
has a way of eating thru the clearcoat (with the salt help I'm sure) and
imbedding into the alloys.... BTDT.... I do both, use a spray wheel cleaner
before every car wash entry, then I wax at least the rim on a regular basis,
I found the dust comes off easier when you do this...
