Been thinking about white wheels. Curious how keeping them clean will be.

With the amount of brake dust from the stock Ferodo pads on the PP brakes, white wheels would be a nightmare.

I figured as much. Just wondering if something like wiping them down every couple days will keep them looking decent until a proper wash. Nice thing about those wheels in the pic looks like they might be easy to clean, not a whole lot of nooks and crannies.

The Sport wheels aren't difficult to clean, but you'll get a lot of practice with the PP brakes. More dust than I've ever seen on a new car.

You should see the BMW M cars... Having worked at a dealership for a bit I've seen silver and chrome wheels turn BLACK from brake dust

Adam’s Polishe’s wheel cleaner. I usually just spray them down with it to help break up the iron but you still need to scrub the wheels with a brush or mitt of some sort.
