The V is my wife's daily driver and I'm the only one that will take the time to wash it correctly. LOL! The brake dust is really annoying it reminds me of my SRT-10.:mad2: I took the wheels off the car a month or so ago and cleaned the backside real good and you can't even tell I did it now. Is there any other pads I can switch to and not cause problems?

Daytona Speed Master Wheel brush comes in handy.

Here's where I get mine.

^ this is what you need. I've been using the stuff and its awesome. Instead of having to clean the rims literally every other day I wont have to touch them for at least a week. And by than the whole car is dirty

+1 for the Armor All Wheel Protectant. I've gone up to 3 weeks with the chrome rims on my Vette.

The Hawk ceramic are great. more performance that stock with less dust for normal driving. wheels will be clean for 2-3 months. Track it though and they dust more than stock.

I have tried other brake dust repellents and they didnt do squat. I will have to try the armor all.

It's great stuff, I even sprayed it on the calipers and it kept my calipers cleaner for even longer than the wheels !

I may try some for those heavy braking events or on other rides. Nice idea guys.
