I'm running Carbotech Bobcat pads all the way around. I decided to try thy the Bobcats after reading some great reviews. When I found out they made a set to fit my StopTech BBK it was a no brain-er. The combination makes for some insane braking. The best part, after three days I was shocked to see virtually no brake dust on my wheels. I didn't buy them for that but I'm so stoked I'm getting a set for my wife's 325 vert. The wheels on her car are black in a day It drives me crazy.

I highly recommend the Carbotech's

i use wheel wax and it works really well for me. i use it once a month and i try to clean my wheels every week using just stoner spray and a micro-fiber cloth... although the wheel wax doesn't "repel" brake dust, it does protect your wheels against pitting, and makes them eaiser to clean... in fact sometimes i can just spray them with water and they come out beyoooootiful.

i've put wheel wax on where my spokes meet my lip just to be able to get the dirt and dust to break up easier.. it worked pretty well but not enough to buy it every month
