Noisy Brake Pads

Postby tjarus » June 15th, 2015, 5:15 pm

My brakes are squealing with the Flo wheels - I had to have them adjusted so that the wheels fit but when I use them, everyone knows. This does not happen with my regular wheels. What can I do to eliminate the noise? Thanks.

That's the first I've heard of this. What type of brake pads are you using? Are you they alloy rated brake pads? Are you sure that the brake pads are contacting only the aluminum braking surface?
