Whether you have a gleaming set of chrome dubs or wealthy ultra-light alloys or the best killer mags on the planet, they're still susceptible to brake dust accumulation. With that on the rims, how can they really shine?
So what does it take to take care of the brake dirt? Scrub it clean? Well, it can do but it may affect your wheels' glimmer. It's better to use brake dust shields for it is better to prevent dust accumulation. Brake dust shield are usually aluminum plates, in the case of Kleen Wheels, that are installed between the rim and your brake disc. The aluminum plate catches all the brake dust blown from the brake disc and prevents it from settling on the your rims. These brake dust shields do not interfere with your car's braking system. It will not affect the braking systems cooling nor in its overheating.
Because it doesn't interfere with your car's performance, it is better to have brake shields on your wheels. These offer perfect protection especially on the front wheels where brake dust generation occurs most often. Rear wheels also generate brake dust so it is better to equip your wheels with a complete set of dust shields.
