Brake Dust Product?
 
Any products out there that help keep brake dust from accumulating on the rims?

Clean them once and keep them clean so it doesn't build up.

Depending on the rim composition, Meguiar's All purpose cleaner would work well with some aggravation, Eagle 1 a2z wheel cleaner as well [a good OTC cleaner].

P21S [ http://www.p21s.com/products/bis_wc1.html ] Is PH neutral so it won't ruin forged or sensitive wheels.

Also, depending on the finish, you can wax the wheels and seal them. Very easy to keep clean thereafter. If not, a metal polish may be in order.

Whatever you choose, get them clean with a cleaner that won't hurt your rims, and protect them. Future cleaning will then be easy and brake dust should come off much easier too.

I don't know of any product that prevents brake dust from accumulating. I have recently tried a product that makes the wheels really slick. It is from "Chemical Guys," it is called Wheel Guard. You can just wipe the dust right off with a towel. My wife's car, or maybe just my wife, produces alot of brake dust. I have tried waxing the wheels often and this stuff is much better, although it is not a cure, it does make the wheels easier to clean. Hope it helps.

Another item to consider. I had a Chrsler T&C minivan with chrome wheels. The brake dust stuck to them like glue. I bought a nearly invisible shield that went between the wheel and the rotor from a company called KleenWheels. They worked great. If they sell them to fit your vehicle you might want to consider them.

Change out the pads...

not sure what can be done to prevent the brake dust in the first place, except for changing the pads like MADDOG said, but to remove the dust, and any other grime that might be on your wheels, try this S-100 wheel cleaner http://www.s100.com/s100_wc.htm I got that stuff for my motorcycle, and it was fantastic- grime that I thought was on my wheels permanently came off with little more than wiping it with a sponge. Haven't used the stuff on my truck much, but I'd imagine that it does just as well there.

I agree with changing pads. That was the first thing I did for my ram. I have always loved my ceramics. They are more expensive but I do not have to clean my wheels. They run cooler, last longer then cheapos. you get what you pay for though.

I think the simplest solution is to get a good wheel cleaning soft brush and just keep them clean so that nothing sticks on there. I wash my truck once a week or two weeks and I hit the wheels at that time.
