Just drove 80 miles city/highway mix and I couldn't notice any dust on the wheels (painted silver color). If wipe my finger, some dust is there. Just not objectionable at all (to me).

I love the way the OEM brakes stop the car. Not worth it for me at this point to switch. Your mileage may vary.
I am vert familiar with Brembos. No thanj you. They do perform very well but the dust problem is just not worth the effort. You'll change you mind some day.

Loved the way they stopped and I thought I could easily keep up with the dust issue. After a 650-mile weekend getaway, I realized they had to go. Chrome wheels were black and the barrels looked like they were painted black. I am a cleaning freak but this was ridiculous .

I'll change them if it becomes an issue. Not an issue yet. Like I said YMMV :-)
