Combine that with excessive disc wear, and it is a thing for only specially interested users.
I don't find ceramic brake pads to wear out the disc any more than other pads. I would get 40K miles on the OEM VW organic pads which left the wheels coated in dust. At the 120K mile mark, I switched to Akebono Ceramic Europads and I have 180K miles on them with about 33% material left. I think you might be confusing ceramic pads with semi-metallic pads.
As for the Tesla, I'll be willing to give ceramic pads a try but I'd like to learn more about the brake bias on the 85 RWD before I make changes to the brakes. I'm curious to know how much brake force is used at the front and rear under light pedal pressure vs moderate to heavy pedal pressure.
Does anyone know which type of brake pads Tesla use as factory default ? I am asking as I've read ceramic brake pads generate the least brake dust and with summer rolling in, I want to keep my rims (especially the fronts) looking clean.
How much brake dust are you getting in a Tesla?
You say this like I have never hosed off brake dust off my ceramic coated rim And not just the rim; I guarantee you my red calipers are at least as clean as yours. (In non-winter months, that is)Brake dust doesn’t just hose off a rim, even on a Tesla. Sure it uses the brakes massively less than an ice car but it still uses the brakes.
Don’t hate on folks who like a rim so clean you can eat off it
