The correct solution, however, is to use a protectant on the wheels. There are a variety of wheel wax products out there that do a good job. Search the "Wash, Wax, Detail, Cosmetic Maintenance & Repairs" section for good advice.
No current protectant or wax is the solution to the OEM pads sticky dust. They are great as placebos for awhile, but at the end of the day the problem is the OEM pads.
