Keeping wheels clean

What's everyone using to keep wheels clean? I've tried the armarol replant. I've clay bared and coated them with "ceramic coating" and it's like 10 miles and done. Anyone know something I don't?

Its the stock brake pads, a few threads on guys who have changed them out for other brands that don't shed so much brake dust. With the ceramic coating though, they should be easy to keep clean.

I know what to replace oem pads and disk with I hope and think I know from other threads, but what everyone using to keep wheels looking shinny for more than a day?
I literally clay barred my wheels and Coated them? I helped my detailer 50 days ago and nothing works?
I use engine to brake to keep dust to a min.
And people look at me like I'm trying to show off by down shifting, and if they only knew

I just wash them and have found the Ceramic coat makes it easier to wash

Having 601Ms I suppose they look cleaner as the majority of the wheel is dark grey

Yes the coloring of the wheel does hide the dust for the first couple days. But I like them shiny .
I have unlimited car washes at the auto spa here so I get car washed 2-3times a week anyway but still do a lot of downshifting to keep dust at bay

a little piece of advise that will reduce the brake dust,
whenever you do a wheel wash try to take the car out for a spin before you finish or detail them.
it will remove all of the water, dirt and rust of the discs. then apply your detailer products,
this will help you a lot

I give wheels a good polish wax and the dust washes off quick,I'm wary of 'wheel clean' sprays.

That's one way of doing it though performance and price are factors in choice.

I have just ceramic coated my wheels myself and the results are impressive, a lot better than wax

What product did you use,I have heard of ceramic coating and have seen in pics of it being applied on cars though it's a long involved job.
Question is does it put off cleaning wheels of brake dust longer.

It wont stop the dust but you can literally clean the wheels by running water over them, lasts over a year also unlike wax

I used Gyeon Q2 Rim

I also used Gyeon products to remove iron, tar etc

Do you ceramic coat the bodywork also.

Yes I had the entire car machine polished 2 stage and ceramic coat applied. Wasn't cheap but the finish is amazing and easy to maintain.
