Yeah...they hide them. Another reason that I took them off. Rather just clean with Eagle One A2Z wheel cleaner myself.

Or here'* an even easier solution!

Get ceramic pads!

I have them on my ghetto gold crosslace, and they NEVER get brake dust on them. Heck, when I wash my car, all I really have to do to clean them is just spray them with water and wash the dust off.

I'll back that up. The only crap on my wheels is the dirt from the road.

I think I'll just wash my wheels, thanks....
i would only need a pair, i have drum brakes in the back
True, but wouldn't look odd to have 2 wheels "blacked out" and the drum showing through the other two?

Either way, 35 bucks a pair is a lot for plastic...

Just get some Mequires wheel cleaner. Spray it on, rinse it off. I use it on my cross laced rims in between washes. I also use Mequires tire dressing afterwards. Great stuff.

I have herd that you can spray the wheels with antistatic spray it will help to keep the dust from sticking

OK what brand of Ceramic Pads are you guys using.
Not trying to change the subject from “dblack1” Dust Shield topic but Ceramic sounds like a better solution.
So far I have only read about Raybestos QuietStop and Morse Ceramic from AutoZone.

Caramic is a far better solution -- no dust, no squealing, last longer...

I think mine came from NAPA.
