I found that putting
Eagle One Wet car polish
and wax on my Xtreme's factory wheels
the brake dust seemed to
be easier to keep off the wheels
I wasnt wiping the brake dust
with a cloth as often.......!

well putting wax/polish on the wheels makes the dust come off alot easier but attracts the dust to stick to it alot faster....static or some $hit..... :)

I did'nt want to start a new post for this question. But chose a wheel post for it. Anywho my X was repaired by Chevy shop a couple months ago. Looks awesome as new everywhere except rims mounted right(repaired side). Which caught Summit White overspray not noticed by anyone except me. I keep this thing like a climate controlled garage Ferrari owner keeps his autos. But the overspray should be removed by which following method? MEK, alcohol, paint thinner, aluminum wool, steel wool. Which is best on a light paint overspray on stock X wheels?

Take it back to the shop. They got the over spray on it, let them get it off. I am thinking paint thinner. But isn't there some kind of clear coat on the rims?

Try the new meguirs or mothers clay bar system. It took paint overspray off my old s-10. It might work on your wheels. I took it right off my old s-10 no work at all....
