Brake dust dam annoying

Has anyone come up with any ideas to stop these wheels getting covered in dust?
It's like a proper full time career keeping them clean

You could try waxing your wheels. Or use some sort of sealant on them. Maybe it makes it easier to clean.

Havent tried it myself but i was told that some people do that and would help. Google is your friend on that matter.

Another idea is aftermarket pads that claim low dust buildup. Havent tried any because i like to use OEM pad and rotors. Idea behind it is longevity. BMW has 5 year inclusive service when new, so they probably designed / used parts that last for a long time so they would not have to replace them often and keep cost down. Dont know if its actually true but thats my thinking behind it.

I've found that dealer pads don't really dust much. Have had oe BMW pads on all four corners for 60+k miles now with only minor dust problems. Do you know what kind of pads are on the car Watersidef30?

OEM pads and discs. Main Dealer replaced them before I collected it .

It is just highly annoying on wheels

I like Akebono ceramic pads for this very reason. The initial bite is not as firm but the stopping power is the same. You could swap out your pads and give those a shot.

I bought Niche Targa in matte grey so I don't notice it.
I still use Sonax though, best wheel cleaner imo.
