FWIW there are plenty of performance pads that have significantly less dust than OEM pads.

In any case, there are plenty of good wheel cleaners on the market, however if you can keep up a frequent routine of washing the car weekly and applying a good layer of protection (wheel sealant or nano coating) then all you will really need is soap and water to clean your wheels.
