2008 VW rabbit, 70k miles, original pads. The tan-ish colored coating and deposits on the wheels from the brake pads. This car doesn't shed the dark black dust instantly the way that my BMW and Saab do. I'm guessing these are ceramic? I've used sonax cleaner, the color changing kind - no change. I've tried a brush and a wheel woolie. Nothing happened. Scratching with a fingernail did remove it pretty easily, so sufficient mechanical force seems to work. So what should be tried next? Magic eraser?
