what is the best way to clean your car and keep it clean? I can keep it clean but not for long........AND the only thing i hate about this car is my rims get dirty in minutes!!!!!!! and i drive and brake normally too. WHY?
The wheels get dirty because of the brake pad compound specified by the TUV, which is the German authority which sets German vehicles regs, and tests products to ensure they meet those regs. You can switch to pads made by Porterfield, Mintex, Pagid, or EBC. They all produce much less dust. Some people report that they squeal more, and that the EBC's cause excessive rotor wear.
If your car is fairly new, the break pads will dust less as time goes by and they "break in". The best thing I have ever used for cleaning brake dust from wheels and tires is Simple Green. It makes the grime fall right off - and you can feel good that it is safe for the environment too.
