That wasn't the wheels' fault.

no not the wheels fault, but the type of brakes and the type of wheel, my rims I have now don't do that much becuase of the more open desighn that they are, much better.

Again, it's not the wheels' fault. Have you changed your brakes sometime in there? The stock brake pads are horribly dirty when it comes to brake dust. If it really bothers you, change the pads. Because again, it isn't the wheels' fault.
