Is this a good product?

    This is in my wheelhouse. I drive a Mini Cooper with white painted wheels. The OEM brake pads dusted my wheels like crazy so I began searching for options (besides cleaning). I decided to try low dusting brake pads and found Hawk HPS brake pads. I am very pleased with their braking feel and most importantly, they hardly dust at all. I can go a couple of weeks without washing and they don't look too bad, whereas the OEM brake pads had my wheels black after about 3 days driving.

    For my car, they cost about $100 per axle but I think the benefit is worth it.

    There are other low dusting brake pads available but since I have first hand experience with Hawk brake pads, that is why I name them specifically.

    I also use the CG Wheel Guard Max Coat wheel wax. It's green in color and the first time I applied it on my white wheels, it stained them. I learned to apply VERY thin coats. The other cars in my care have clearcoated alloy wheels. I use it primarily for the gloss it leaves on both my painted wheels and the alloys but I guess if it helps ease my wheel cleaning regimen, that's a bonus!

    Mike and the others gave you great tips to follow.
    Chemical Guys is garbage. Not sure if I am allowed to post that (in case AG sells that brand).
