    My husband has one complaint about our new 2016 Charger Hellcat. The brakes make the wheels extremely dirty fast. Has anyone changed out their original pads to ceramic? If so how do you like them and where can you purchase them?

    Search feature is your friend. Multiple threads on this subject. Most are using powerstop z23 or z26 pads.

    Tried to edit but it would not let me change the title. Noticed the error too late and it would help to be on my computer rather than my phone. :confused:

    No need to change your "break" pads. Just spray your wheels with Armor All Wheel Protectant after cleaning them. It keeps the dust off them.

    I installed Powerstop Z23 pads front and back. $101 shipped from Summit Racing. No dust after that and they stop great!

    Love my Z23's. Got them from Speedlogix and they work great. Put them on with 100 miles on the odometer and have no regrets. Added 20 black Gorilla locks from them at the same time.

    Also, IronX cleans wheels like nothing I've used before. Spray, turns purple, hose off...that's it. Got a jug of it from CarPro along with the best microfiber towels and a merlino wool mitt that is soft as a babies you know what.

    Support our supporting vendors :cool:

    Yep, Powerstop Z23 pads, I can't tell any difference on the pedal and dust has been reduced to a minimum!

    The z23's are awesome. I don't think they feel quite as nice as the OEM but that could also be in my head. I'm one happy camper though barely any brake dust the difference is incredible. Unless you only wash your car once a year it really negates having to use harsh wheel cleaners, keep the whole side of the car cleaner and the calipers too. Best mod I've done and got them for around 70 shipped front and rear.
