I'm just wondering if my car has different brake pads than yours cause this is a problem I no longer have with my 2012 C350. I hated it so much when I had my '01 SLK 320 & '05 CLK 500 cause after just driving a day or two of city driving most especially, the front wheels really gets dirty with brake dust. You might want to try the Armor All wheel protectant which really works.

I did some research on brakes before I replaced mine, all 4 corners with pads and rotors.

Some forum members reported that some after-market brakes do not have the same "bite" as the OE. I wash my car often (maybe once a week) and wax every 1-2 month, including wheels. So, I decided finally on OE brakes.

We carry them for $89 front, $65 rear.
