If you're using OEM pads...maybe a set of Axxis...night and day difference !
Braking is slightly less then OEM pads though.

If you continue to use OEM, I suggest the Eagle One Wheel Cleaner and then a coat of wax on the wheels. ....which helps a little . As long as you keep ontop of the brake dust cleaning wise, after the inital cleaning, you should be fine.

I would say use P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel Formula, the gel grabs the brake dust well.

Wash your wheels/car more frequently a coat of wheel wax or wax would help as well.

Groits garage wheel cleaner or ZEP Degreaser work great to get the dust off

Mothers or eagle one wheel wax to extend how long they stay clean
