Brake dust

Why do these BMr's have so much breake dust? is there any thing we could do to stop this from happening? Is there a better breake pad out there. also what is the best cleaner for new rims that won't harm the rims at all.

you can buy low dusting brake pads, I am not sure which company is the best though. As for the rim cleaner, P12S makes a great one.

Yep, the Akebonos are about the best that you can get for low dust. Rock Auto has great pricing on them.
