Is there a product to put on rims to keep brake dust off?

I was just wondering if there was a product to put on aluminum wheels to keep brake dust off of them. I know certain brake pads are worse than others. But I didn't know if there was any sort of trick to prevent this or a product out there?

yep its called Elbow grease and washing them frequently

In all honestly I dont think there is only way to keep brake dust off is just to continually clean them. My company car is a BMW 525i and that thing has more brake dust then any other car I have ever SEEN! and you ask the dealer about it and they just say its the pads and if you dont use that pad it will void the warranty yadie yadie... so I tried searching for something to keep it off, but elbow grease has been the only thing I have found

zero dust???? you are the man

even on the dodge I try and wash it twice a weak and I still have a little bit of brake dust...


that car has to get up to 100 first without breaking down... I hate that thing... I've had more dang problems out of that car. I would NEVER buy a BMW for my personal vehicle after all the problems i've had out of that thing

Seriously?

I am not sure how much those pads cost, but damn they sound like they are worth it. You get the same or better stopping power?
