I feel like my brakes are really not as grabby as they used to be. But there still seems to be meat on the pads. Whats the right way to deglaze or whatever it's called the pads and rims?

lightly sand...C-40

Use 120 grit sandpaper on a flat sanding block to remove any glaze on the brake pads. Only takes a few strokes, don't get carried away.

Use a green Scothbrite pad and some water to clean the rims.
