OK, this brake dust is beyond belief. What are some possible replacements for these OEM dust generators? :-(

Any car with stock Brembo pads has this problem. Make the rotors and pads even bigger and what a surprise, more dust! :)

Now just imagine if your wheels were not black, at least that helps hide it a bit. I will probably swap pads at some point but for now it does not bother me -- spray on wheel and tire cleaner works wonders. Spray it on, let it sit for a minute, spray it off. Gets 95% of it off and I get the rest off with a microfiber towel dedicated to the wheels.

The front brakes on the Hellcat are very similar to the ones I had on my 12 SRT Grand Cherokee. I replaced the stock pads with Ceramic ones and it cut the dust by 75%. I was still not has good as a non-high performance car but much better.

Must be a lot of folks first SRTs, as this is par for the course with any cars in their lineup.

First thing I do is install Hawk Ceramic pads. If these brakes are identical as those on 392 Challengers for the past couple years they are easy to find. Will set you back about $200

Pics for those of us who don't have one yet? I bet it's hard to clean, too
Yeah, they are hard to clean. The brake dust really sticks to the wheels and it is hard to show in pics, but it makes them look brown. Especially the inside of the wheel. :D
