I used to have the same problem with my 13 inch wires the ones on the front used to get black from brake dust.But not any more what I did is I went to NAPA auto parts and got me some really good brake pads. I think they were $80 dollars believe me they work you will be glad u did. ;) :cool:

welcome to the club. that's what happens to wires. Just clean them every few days or get some really good brake pads. I wouldn't suggest dust covers. But that's up to you.

They are a mother fucker. Here are some helpfull tips.

1. Do not clean while hot.

2.Use a soft clean paint brush

3. Use the wire wheels cleaner

4. Use a high powered hose or nozel

5. Get the better breakpads

Be good to them and hopefully pull a year with the best shoes on the block.
