spray rotors with water (make sure they are cool enough to touch comfortably!). let sit for a couple of hours. then go out to an empty area (an industrial/office park on a weekend works well) and do several hard stops from about 60. it's ok and almost desirable to get into the abs a bit. 5-6 stops should do it.
yes, rims do get dirty. easier to clean if you keep them waxed.
: My brake always squeek when I brake. Is this supposed to be normal and if it is, it's very annoying. My rims also need to be cleaned every 2-3 days, normal too?
