Since I had them off the car I cleaned the backside as well. Man there was a ton of road goop in there. Looked like some of the stuff they seal the tar with when it cracks, tons of brake dust, and stuff I couldn't recognize.

The Hot Rims cleaner a stiff brush and they were clean in moments.

And yeah..they were off because of what happened behind them.

Thank you for pointing out the beyond obvious...

I couldn't deal with the pads anymore. 40 miles of highway driving and the wheels were filthy.

Took them off to find nearly new pads and pretty groovy rotors...and I don't mean neat rotors. Another reason I did them was I could see the crappy rotors.

Nice, new and no more noise, no more dust, no more have to wash them every day.
