Hi

 

There''s always a layer of dust on rims. No matter how you wash, within one or two days, the rims look sleepy again. Unlike Tyres or Car body where you can maintain a shine even after 5 days, rims is a component that always look dusty.

 

What solutions and methods would you recommend?

Get aftermarket brake pads which produce less dust? Stock ones tend to generate a lot more dust...

I presumed your is Original and most EU car has lot of brake dust (not all).

if you are looking for less dust you got to go for after market and Please tell them your expectation otherwise you may end up similar problem.

! advice is ask for Good quality type

Cheap quality type could affect your braking distance or effectiveness

Luckily I'm not into fashion.
Hopefully got clearance stock and not listed as limited sets prices.
Anyway, my car is quite dark already. Add on black rims, a little too hard-core for me.

Hi

There''s always a layer of dust on rims. No matter how you wash, within one or two days, the rims look sleepy again. Unlike Tyres or Car body where you can maintain a shine even after 5 days, rims is a component that always look dusty.

What solutions and methods would you recommend?

2 things :

1) Get Sonax Wheel Cleaner, nano technology. Spray, wait 3mins, use strong hose spray, brake dust gone. No other brands come close!!!! You can spray it before driving into car wash. Damn stink!! But damn good!!



2) Change low brake dust brake pads, rims get dirty much slower.
