Excessive brake dust

I have New 2022 ST with the red calipers and have noticed a lot of brake dust on the wheels after only a week of driving. Is that normal? I replaced the pads on my Subaru STI with Power Stop Z26 and virtually eliminated brake dust and stops extremely well. I see Power Stop has the Z36 available for the ST. Anyone try these yet?

I have not noticed excessive brake dust on mine. Black wheels that get washed often.

I hate it too. I have a dedicated California Car Duster just for the wheels. Have had it for all my cars. Performance brake pads are soft and they do dust more than normal pads.

My CTSV had horrible brake dust but great brakes. I used the spray on wheel protectant and it helped keep them a little cleaner and the dust sprayed off easy.
