Nothing major, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this on their Pilot. On mine it seems the worst on the drivers front. I only have 700 miles on mine and my front wheels are black from the dust.

I thought I saw a thread about excessive brake dust........

I had the same thing as well but have figured out what my problem was. The dealer prepped the car very well but was overzealous with the Armor All.

After examining the wheels they had the same slippery slimy feel as the tires after spraying on Armor All. I wiped off the brake dust and then thoroughly cleaned the wheels with some soap and water to get all the armor all off.

No more brake dust :2: :2: :2:

Your right!

Now that you say that, after I had taken it through the car wash the first time, I never had that problem again. I never even thought of that. Thanks for the info. I can finally put my mind to rest.:confused:

I hope I'm not suggesting something bad but instead of Armour All and Black Magic products I like to use Pledge or other furniture waxes on my tires. They give it the nice black hue and don't seem to collect as much brake dust and road dirt on the rims. You also don't get that black grime on your clother if you bump them.

I also use it on my half mask on our Accord. (Off the car not on) It moisturizes it and still looks like new 3 1/2 yrs later. I used it on my other cars and never had a problem with the masks.

Just to asage your fears, I have over 2100 miles and I haven't noticed any excessive accumulation of brake dust, though my experience has always been that brake dust will accumulate faster in the first month after new pads (which these would obviously be) are installed. Of course, I have already washed my Pilot about 3 or 4 times and the first time was within the first week I had it (got it pretty muddy on a fly-fishing trip). I suspect that the problem is as Cheesehead pointed out or because of the newness of the pads.
