    Just changed pads and rotors, and I've been noticing that my wheels are getting grayer and grayer. Did I do something wrong or is this just from them being new? Is there anything I can do to reduce it?

    it usually happens from using softer pads. shitty steel pads don't work as well, but leave less mess.

    from my experience, the better the pad, the more the brake dust.

    not always true. the hawk HPS on my grey car leave a shit ton of dust however the same pad on the white car leave less. also, could be the difference between a dual piston setup with a 12.1in rotor and a single piston setup with a 10.2in rotor ;)
