Does anyone know of where I can get some pads for the front and rears of my 01' CLK 55 that dont kick out so much brake dust? Im sick and tired of having to clean my 'black' rims every 2 days or so.<br> <br> Im ready to buy NOW...so please drop me a line or call me at (480) 540-3001 <br> <br> Thanks<br> Andrew

Andrew:<br> <br> I changed to Porterfield pads: AP682 R-4S (front) and AP603 R-4S (rear). These do reduce the dust considerably but, they do not eliminate it. Also, the front brake wear sensor is disabled.<br> <br> I now clean my wheels about once a week rather than every two days.<br> <br> Lance

I believe Red are used for track (not street) use. Also, some people who have used EBC ....

Greenstuff (which are the street version of their pads) have complained of abnormal rotor wear. I didn't have any problems with mine, but have since switched to Porterfields. They generate even less dust than the EBC Kevlar pads and are considered 'rotor friendly.'
