Come to think of it, they DO seem to be getting a little on the thin side!

Has anyone noticed that the rims get awful dirty or greasy easily? We have to wipe them down daily it seems.

That "dirt" you keep having to wipe off is dust from the brake pads. It's normal and you just have to get used to it! Welcome to the world of four wheel disk brakes! :smile:

And whatever you do, don't let them go for very long. "baked-on" brake dust is a BEAR to remove sometimes. Trust me, I know. :-B

I love that line.. Completely forgot where I heard it. As for the dust.. Absolutely clean it before it sits too long.. It can worm it's way into the clear coat and is a big pain in the ass to clean up. For gerneal duty I use Eagle One wheel cleaner. safe for all wheels and clearcoats.. Spray it on.. wait 2 mins.. spray it off. Works great.

Cleaning these whells HAVE to be easier than the 17" ones I had on my 98GT. What a pain to get into all of the little slots!!
BTY - These cars came with brakes??!!?? LOL

You Bullitt owners are so lucky! I mean with those dark paint colors, and all. My silver Feature GT, on the other hand, shows every bit of molten rubber on the rear flanks. Melted rubber is so bad on the clearcoat, by the way.

Brakes? Is that what those big round things are behind the wheels with the red thingy and the pony?
