If you're driving fast enough to need a V1, you shouldn't even consider Kleen Wheels... they're a great way to warp brake rotors by retaining heat.

: Can anyone suggest a quality brake pad that doesn't erode brake dust as fast as a sand dune?
: Any opinions on "Clean Wheels", the plastic/aluminum plate you can insert between the wheel and brake assembly to limit visible dust? As I'm not racing, I'm not concerned with slightly lower cooling to the brakes.
: I'm driving the full stretch of I-5 down the center of California tomorrow. First long roadtrip in the car. Got my self a V-1 radar detector for Christmas!
: Happy holidays,
