    All of above responses, while correct, are fixing the symptom and not the problem

    Change your brake pads to a carbon/ceramic material and you'll dramatically reduce your brake dust and thus the dirty wheels/laborious wheel cleaning
    Several brands out there...EBC Red, Carbotech Bobcat 1521, etc.
    I had a Porsche GT3 with steel/iron brakes and changed the pads to the Carbotech Bobcats and cut dust by ~75%....they were equal in dust/dirt to my current 2011 GT3RS with factory PCCB

    Once you change the pads, then use the routine most have noted: clean wheels inside/out with a quality cleaner (P21S, Sonax or my current, Optimum Power clean), coat with a sealer (I use Optimum Opti-Seal), wax.

    not much at all there were some spots that required some tarminator but note that these wheels haven't been cleaned in 2 years.

    I dont mind pulling the wheels off ( when Im going to a carshow) . I clean the tires with Meguirars gold soap and the wheels too. inside and out then let them dry fully and "wax" the inside of the wheel to keep brake dust and dirt down. Then I quick detail the outside to keep the wheel clean for days.
    I have ran out of room for watches, Im now going to collect cars...

    2011 Mustang GT Coupe 415 hp ( for now) Still mine.
