M performance brakes too dusty

I?m getting tired of all the dust from the m performance brakes. Anyone have any good recommendations for a replacement pad?

Cool Carbon S/T pads reduce dust and provide better bite on my 2013 335i.

WTF?

Look, I don't want to be too nasty, but

YOU BOUGHT A HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKE PACKAGE! EXPECT THEM TO DO THINGS LIKE SQUEAL AND DUST. PERFORMANCE DOES NOT EQUAL BEING EASY TO LIVE WITH.

No ones complaining about the brakes themselves. I have no squealing at all. I am just looking for something with less dust. Sorry I am not settling I guess....

Chill out Cowboy!

Go ask a P car owner how much their CCBs dust. The answer....very little. These aren't endurance racing brakes; they're for street use. The OPs question is legit.

Most steel rotor German car brakes are heavy on dust. If you want to be helpful; suggest a less aggressive brake pad option.

there are plenty of high performance brake options that don't dust or squeal like this. you can have both, whether YOU know it or not.

Outlast from Armor All. Used to be called wheel protectant. It?s great. No brake bust after you spray it on.

Is this basically a wax for wheels?

It?s a spray almost like Teflon. Takes 2 minutes to apply after every wash.

It's hard to avoid, either you are going to get passenger car brakes with low dust or performance and dust. Ceramic will lower dust but also diminish the feel. Just roll over to autozone and ask for low dust pads and do it up!

This ^^^^ Armor All wheel protectant was my savior when it came to the "battle of keeping wheels clean of brake dust". After washing, make sure your wheels are super dry. Apply a thin coat of this stuff and enjoy clean wheels.

Did that work for you? These brakes dust something awful.

It?s not perfect but it is a lot better. First week rims look great by the 2nd week they start looking darker.
