When you need carbon blocks for your carbon rims and you change them into alu, it's not funny to change your brake blocks every time, so will carbon brake blocks perform good on anodised rims,like ambrosio crono?
And which are the best for use on carbon rims in dry and wet conditions?

Good question! I have Zipp 303s with coolstop carbon pads (green) and they howl. Is this normal?

DO NOT use the same blocks for carbon rims & ally rims, they pick up small particles that can damage the carbon
