    What can I do to protect black wheels?

    My new wheels have a Machine Face, Black Pockets and Black Lips. What can I do to protect my wheels? I've noticed already that brake dust seems to show up fast. They don't stay looking clean long at all. Going to switch to Ceramic Pads, but besides trying to reduce the dust. What can I put on my wheels to protect and clean easier?

    Meguiar's quick detailer once a week and then a mini auto-dustmop is what I use and they look pretty good most the time.

    Black paint is messed up after you drive around the block,

    Black wheels seldom make it to the stop sign clean lol

    I like McKees 37 wheel coating. My pads produce an insane amount of dust but the wheels are always looking brand new after a good wash.

    I use Collinite 845 and it works wonders on my gunmetal wheels. I mean, blew my mind how easy it was to apply and how well it protected. Got the recommendation off detailing forums.

    Ceramic coating has no competition for ease of cleaning. The only way to keep them looking cleaner longer after washing is a break pad with minimal dust. I couldn't believe the difference after switching to ceramic by powerstop.

    The McKee's was recommended to me by a few people.. So this is what I went with. I bought there Wheel Coating on the Hydro Blue for weekly cleanings.

    I had some Collinite 845 around some where. Was decent stuff. A little goes a long ways with that stuff.

    I have Street5.0 pads from Hawk Performance.. I have another set of Hawk HPS pads brand new in the box, but not sure if they produce less brake dust.
