To deal with the brake dust (which does diminish once pads are broken in), find a Ceramic Pro detailer in your area, and have them coat your wheels in Ceramic Pro STRONG (not 9H). Expect to pay from $150-$200. They must be removed to be done properly.

Dust won't accumulate nearly as quickly, and you can wash brake dust off with a hose after getting it coated. Well worth it, should last more than 5 years.

I have a buddy that coated them with Modesto BC04. They clean fairly easily but I literally have to clean them everyday to keep them black.

Hopefully it starts to diminish. I drove a TON. Mostly freeway and have about 1500 miles already.

Is there a remedy for this?

Re: Brake dust issue?

Invest in a power (pressure) washer. Literally takes a few minutes to clean the wheels and you won't even need a cleaning agent sprayed on the wheels.

Quite honestly, any power washer within your budget. I bought a gas Genrac and it's great. This may help .........
