This is true! When I went in to have my brakes replaced because they were getting very thin on my SS, the rotors had to be replaced as well, they are designed to wear with the pads and can't be turned or they will be out of spec and warp, is what I was told. I replaced the pads with the AC Delco semi metallic pads instead of the brembo pads and they are pretty much dust free. I have black and metallic maroon trimmed rims and am very anal about the dust too. They stay pretty clean with these pads, and the car stops pretty good if you have to..
