    I would like to try it, getting sick of cleaning the fronts all the time with the brake dust build up. Hopefully someone has tried it here and will report in.

    Very next mod going on later next week! I too am tired of washing my wheels every 100 miles!!!! :mad: My Viper/SRT Tech highly recommends them! The decision is rubber backed for street driving or go right to the SST backed to have fun on the track also? Decisions - Decisions!!! :D

    Let me know how they work out for you??

    Thanks!!

    yes sir will do. i have heard and read nothing but great things. i thought it may be better to install sooner than later, and i am also tired of my wheels being nasty the day after a fresh detail.

    FWIW, I just recently installed the Z26 pads and they are awesome due to being virtually dust free. As others have reported, there is a noticeable difference in braking performance. For regular street driving they are just fine, but I would not run them at the track.

    I'm already planning on installing those pads on my car, and I haven't even taken delivery of the car yet!

    Sure, the only difference between them is the backing on the pads. The 23's have a rubberized coating and the 26's have bare stainless, which is supposed to better for high temps (track usage).

    I use this product on all the families vehicles and love it. Only armor all product I will use. Been using it over 2 years with zero bad effects. It helps keep dust from sticking and next clean will be really easy. Usually water alone will clean them up. But, make sure rims and calipers are super clean before applying or whatever ends up under the film will be there for a while. A few of my buddies have done this and it took a lot of work to clean back up. Clean means different things to different people. And no, it does not effect braking at all

    It is not a cure all but it seems to work pretty good I have been using it the last 3 months and it makes a pretty big difference. They still get dirty of course but not as much and clean up is easy.

    The Z23's have saved my OCD sanity. Barely any dust at all the difference between them and stock is enormous. The brake feel may not be quite as good, but honestly if someone swapped them while I was sleeping the only thing I would notice is not having disgusting brake dust all over the wheels constantly.
