Yea, those wheels do get nasty... some have suggested using Kleen
Wheels, those disks the fit between the rotor and wheel. I would
worry that heat buildup would be a problem and warp everything in the
I have used wax and some stuff, Black Magic Paint Protectant. Its a
semi clear spray that you just wipe on and off. It doesnt keep the
dust off, it it does let me use a high pressure water stream to
remove the dust.
So far, I have NOT used any wheel cleaners, but used soft brushes and
car wash detergent.
