Dirt / Black Soot from Brakes?

Hello All,

I noticed recently that my front rims get covered in black soot easily. I'm not sure if my rims just get dirty easily or whether the brakes are going bad. I've heard that when brakes go bad a black powedery substance can start coming off (due to rubbing)

Hope i'm making sense...

Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

The dust that you see is normal. Try some Eagle 1 AtoZ and the dust will go away without much effort.
