I have just changed to my winters (16" steelies) and my brakes seem to squeak when I press the brakes lightly. They don't squeak when i had my 18" summers tires on and stopping power is the same, it is just the noise that is annoying.
Could it the lack of ventilation on the 16" steelies since steelies are so enlcosed, it causes the brake dust to stick back onto rotor or brake pads?

Re: Brakes squeaking (Shox Boy)

temperature ?
my brakes always squeal when the mercury hits about 6 celsius
it's probably the crappy stock pads
