A4 Wheels

There is no easy solution for this problem. I've learnt to live with

I would definitely *not* wipe the dust covered wheels without heaps
of water as the finish is clearcoat and will scratch the same as
the body paint.

I've found the best thing to do is to wax the wheels same as the
rest of the car and the dust washes off easily in a quick 2 minute
zip with hose and brush.
