    Well I put my car away today and I thought I would spray the rims with FF to prevent oxidization. We'll see in the spring how it works, my rotors are a little rusty from sitting around but I can't take it for a drive so I put FF on them too, it will burn off anyway with brake clean and use.

    I'm not too sure about that one. I would be very cautious with FF on my rotors. Have you ever done that before? I would think that it would be very dangerous and would be concerned with it getting on the pads, too. JMO.

    I agree. I know that on a motorcycle when you get any lube on a rotor it will cake/glaze the pads and no amount of hard stops will help them. Best bet once once a lube gets on pads is to replace them. Granted they will still work, just not 100%.

    If you havent used the brakes on it since spraying it, I would get it off the rotor with brake clean asap. It will not soak in the metal, but the pad is porous and will soak it up.
