Brake Dust

I had brake dust shields on my OEM 16" wheels and really liked them. I have long since changed to 18" Eagle Alloys. I have not had any luck finding shields to fit. Anyone know where I might find them?

Over the winter I have neglected to keep the wheels clean and I am now in for some work. I wish the people that say "spray on rinse off" would try it on mine, 60days of mud, snow and mostly brake dust. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks

ive learned that brake dust is WORSE from aftermarket brake pads.

the shields that youre talking about are NOT a great solution, they trap
HEAT in the rotors & pads.
