I still am running semi-metallic (forgot the brand) brake pads. The brake dust is plentiful, which sucks especially on the ghetto golds.
But I found this wheel cleaner called "Greased Lightning Orange Blast" in a 32 oz bottle. This sh** is awesome! I barely have to scrub anymore. The jet spray from it takes most of the dust off...and I use a toothbrush a little and the whels are clean. I still may get a lot of dust but it takes me so much shorter a time to clean them. Thought this may help some ppl out.
Plus I got it from a wholesale club store, and got it in bulk....3 - 32oz bottles for less than $10!!! Huge friggin deal.
