Angry wheel spacers kicking up road grime!

I've had my MS spacers (12/15) for about a month now. Got my M detailed today after seemingly weeks of monsoon rains here, and I was royally pissed to see the amount of road tar and debris that has been kicked up and plastered onto my rear fender and front sideskirt!! I got home and spent an hour picking that crap off with my thumbnail and a diaper, and still didn't get it all off. I never had this problem before over the last year. I had heard that the wider offset would kick up more tire junk, but this is riduculous. Is this just what you have to put up with with the spacers? I was thinking about doing clear-bra wrap over those areas but I wonder if it's too late--already "contaminated". How do others deal with this?
