Iron cutting your wheels might help a bit. It pulls the iron out of the pores of the paint on the wheels and might help to dissolve the iron that's sitting in those brake dust deposits. Try it, the worst that can happen is it doesn't work. Just make sure whenever you do get everything off you put something back on to protect the wheels, whether it be a wheel specific protectant or just some wax. It'll stop you from having this issue again.

I used meguiars alloy wheel cleaern after neglecting the inside of the rims for years. it worked pretty well but were a few stubborn spots wouldn't come off.

If you find something that works very well please do share!

With my new wheels I spent 5 hours applying several coats of a wolf's rim shield product so hopefully will prevent me from having that issue on these.

I went to AutoGeek.net and bought:

1. Stop Tech Brake Pads (To limit the dust of the stock Pads).
2. Sonax Wheel Cleaner.
3. CarPro IronX Iron Remover.
4. Migliore Wheel Seal.

Hopefully this will do the trick. Will let you all know after I get the stuff this weekend.

So I did everything besides the Miglior Wheel seal.

The brake pads are great, feel like stock, no noise, and from what I can tell after only a few days there is a lot less dust then the stock pads.

The Sonax Wheel cleaner is Magic in a bottle. That stuff is the best wheel cleaner I have ever used hands down, and I have tried a lot.

The CarPro IronX, takes even more dirt and dust off after the wheel cleaner is done. You can still see it turn purple in spots that Sonax missed. Really good stuff too.

I did use the Migliore Wax on the brake calipers to prevent them from getting to dirty as well.

Ill give another update after more miles and another wash.

^ yes, that method I posted worked pretty good. cost about $200 bucks to do it myself including the pads and cleaning supplies.
