Hey, I've been curious, how is brake dust with white rims? How quick does it get dirty?
i know it's not my car, but i used to have white wheels lol. so it depends on the brake pad, but it's definitely way more noticeable on white than other colors. some pads can go a week or two (daily driving) and still look good, some pads will cause the car to look rough after a day or two. but if you get white wheels, (really any but especially white), get them ceramic coated with a quality coating before you put them on the car, that'll help make cleaning much easier, and you can use a rag and some quick detail to get a bulk of the dust off, and a thorough wash will get the rest, and make it much easier with less scrubbing.

I’m currently running Hawk HPS 5.0 pads in the front and they release less brake dust than the rear wheels. Rear brake pads are the factory Brembo pads. I’ll be swapping those to Hawks soon

wheels are also ceramic coated so all dust comes right off with a quick rinse
