Brake Pads with Less Dust - Get "Dustless" with Us!

Tired of black, dusty, greasy wheels the day after you detailed your vehicle? We can help!

Brake Dust

Some luxury vehicles – Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo – are notorious for dirty wheels!

Performance-oriented manufacturers strive to provide their customers with massive stopping power, with minimal noise. To that end, they fit their vehicles with relatively soft brake pads. These soft brake pads help the vehicles achieve astounding predictability, power and control but can leave a black, clingy dust on your expensive wheels!

Brake "dust" is actually a combination of carbon fibers, metal filings and adhesives generated as the brake pads press against the rotors. This dust not only makes your wheels unsightly but can also etch the finish of your wheels if left unattended.

There’s no way to eliminate brake dust entirely because brake pads are designed to wear. If they didn’t, they’d chew up the rotors. The good news is that there are alternatives to OE high-black-dust brake pads. A growing number of aftermarket brake pad suppliers now have “low-dusting” formulations that improve wheel cosmetics, as well as brake performance. Consequently, they don’t have that unsightly appearance associated with the black, greasy dust and your wheels stay cleaner longer.

Over the years, many manufacturers have researched the best formulation(s) to help combat the complaint of brake dust. Some of these formulations are ceramic brake pads or ceramic blend pads, organic pads made of blended fibers that can consist of a combination of the following: Kevlar, synthetic glass, carbon and aramid fibers.

Brakewarehouse confidently recommends the following low-dusting pads:
