2013 break dust

Hey guys we just picked up a 2013 super cab loaded, great rig i love all the luxury features over my 6.4 but one big complaint is the break dust after only 1k miles the front wheels are black and the rears are already going that way! is there a solution for this or should i just put better pads in it?
Thanks for the help Cody[IMG]

HUH??? I have had a 2011 and a 2012. Both trucks were very clean brake systems once broken in. Maybe Ford has changed the pad material for the 2013 models but I kinda think you should wait a couple thousand miles and see after they get seated.

I remember at first I thought the pads were very dusty but they cleared right up very quickly. I can say that it takes some miles to get the brakes broken in and seated. The first 500 miles are scary if you have to stop fast. By the time you get 2000 miles on them they feel a lot better and you start depending on them more. After 15 - 20 thousand miles these trucks have awesome brakes. I believe since they are slow to seat, they may last a long time too??

Anyway, get some miles on your brakes and I think you will be pleased, , , , and clean your wheels!!!

I also have a 2013 F250 and i put American force polished wheels on even after a 60 mile highway trip they are coated. Im buying ceramic pads and looking into the "brake dust guards" that go on the back side of the wheels to block dust.

I have a 2012...never had a brake dust issue. What you are explaining did not happen on my truck. Now, maybe I just clean it frequently LOL! Seriously, I think something must have changed for you to see that much.

I purchased a 2013 in May. It now has 2800 miles from the drive out of Mexico. It is now in the shop for a quick check on the brake dust issue. Mine has dusted the front wheels quite noticeably and wanted to make sure there is not a problem. The rears have not been and issue as of yet. So far the dealer is saying everything is checking out okay, but they seem to be heating up more than normal. We'll see as time goes on I guess.

Didn't they change brakes in 2013? Maybe pads are different?

The brake rotors are larger and may be the reason for more dust.

I noticed excessive dust from mine too. Seems to be getting better. I'm at 3000 miles now.
