do you think using regular car was would work? probably couldnt hurt right?
i would use something that is made for what you are looking for... just goto peb boys and see what they got... i wouldnt use regular wax because you dont know how it would act, and the last thing u want to do is dry out the rubber on the tire because then it will crack and be prone to leaking...

I use NuFinish...

On my wheels and have had great success. It will last quite a while. In between waxing I use the Turtle Wax Express Shine in the green bottle..

I would suggest a set of Axxis Deluxe Plus brake pads for your car if you really want to get rid of the brake dust. My brother has them on his Z Coupe Roadster and the difference is amazing. I just bought mine from Dave Z. here: http://www.zeckhausen.com/axxis_pads.htm

Total cost was $94.00 shipped for front and back...

Try using mother's polish, or anything from BILLET polishes works. I'm waiting on a can of polish from that new nano-wax stuff from eagle one, let you know how it turns out.

One of the best products I've used on wheels is Collinite Insulator Wax. Available from Autogeek Dot Com. It's a sealant with hi-temp resistance properties.

Wheel Wax is also good, but Collinite is extremely slick in finish and makes wheel maintenance easy. It's also good for any painted surface, especially in the winter.

I have Axxis pads on the 540. The lack of brake dust is amazing--none at all. The only problem is that the stopping power is decreased. The brakes also fade quickly under heavy use. Not a pad for consistent spirited driving.

Then why do they make them for BMW's?

I used Wheel Wax for the first time on my new 335i sport and it has done a great job. It makes washing off the brake dust quick and easy. It takes very little time to apply.

Applying pam on tire

Applying 'pam' on the tire is not trustworthy, whereas applying wax on tire not only resist dust and other harmful elements but also protect them from UV light that break down the tire surface.
