Yeah you can get rid of brake dust appearance by replacing the chrome
wheels to a rather darker black set such as the FR wheels. In this way, brake dust doesn't give the same appearance you would get with chrome, requiring you to clean your wheels less often while maintaining a better appearance (if you like the FR wheels that is). Maybe someone with FR wheels can give you a more appropriate response to why they replaced stock wheels.
Do you have the spider monkey rims ( Split 5 Spoke) or the regular goliath (5 Spoke) chrome wheels ? Also, is it chrome, satin carbon or black vapor chrome ? Black vapor chrome has the least effect of brake dust, where the shininess is reduced to a more matte color. Regular chrome and satin carbon will show a rather obvious black coat on top of them.
