Wheel Cleaner No Touch

Howdy All,

Any suggestions? I am damn tired of have to clean the tires every two days do to the crap brake pad dust. They can put a rover on Mars but cannot cure the common dust lol.

I saw this and hmmmm makes me wonder. I do not want to scrub anymore in the Florida heat!!! That is for the youngins lol.

Brake Dust Pro seen the youtube. Intersting.

I use Eagle one wheel cleaner, and then wax them every time I detail. With the wax it's easy to just spray the brake dust off with a hose. Seems to work for me.

I like to use Mothers. I do need to wipe it off, but no intense scrubbing required. It even gets all of the gunk on the inside with little effort.

I'm at 22,XXX and zero brake dust. I wax the wheels and any road grime comes off pretty easily.

Switch out the pads to ceramics if you are worried about dust. Problem solved.

RejeX is a great product to reduce brake dust buildup, and making it very easy to wash off.

It was designed for high temp military applications, so unlike common waxes, which will disintegrate due to the high temps the wheels reach, this stuff lasts a long time (probably only need to apply a few times a year).

All great suggestions. I just sent my driver to dip-your-car.com HQ to pickup BDP cleaner. They are here locally and have it in stock. I will post before and after pics or a youtube vid using just a garden hose over the next few days. I will follow the instructions and time to the letter and post results. Lets truly see if it is "no-touch" on Dipped wheels and non dipped.!
