Brake Dust Removal - Best Product?

What's best product/method to remove semi-baked-on brake dust? After a hundred miles it's already pretty thick using CL RC6 pads.

And is there a wax or anything you can apply to stop the dust sticking quite so much in the first place?

Re: Brake Dust Removal - Best Product?

supaguard do a alloy wheel protector. its a spray that once the wheels are clean you spray over and wipe over with a cloth and it makes cleaning the weheels next time SOOO much easier.

as for getting the stuff off....there are so many products that do this. i am using the turtle was nano tech wheel cleaner at the moment its pretty good but i have not found one yet that stands out so can't really help here. but the protector from supaguard is very good.
just my little input...might help.

Bilberry is amazing for removing brake dust and general wheel cleaning:

ValetPro - Bilberry Wheel Cleaner

For wheel sealing I use FK1000P but Poorboys is great too!

T-cut....

No joke.

I buy the halfords 5l tub of wheel cleaner, clean the wheels with that. Gets the thick of it off, or cheap 99p wheel cleaner from pound land is good, believe it or not i find it much better than expensive wheel cleaner, each to their own and everyone has their own opinions.

Then if i want them looking even cleaner i go over them with T-cut. I have put wax on before but tbh with pads designed for trackday / race use they are always going to get covered straight away, you just have to keep on top of it.

I wanted to but it said the brush was for heavy duty use so I got the one with a brush instead from eBay

Nice one mate, it's shit hot that stuff. I only used it 1:1 once when I was doing a mates car with really caked wheels.

On mine on a regular basis I dilute it 1:3 in a foamer bottle, spray on and leave it for around a minute, agitate with a brush and then pressure wash off. Job done
