How do I keep my stock wheels clean?

A few weeks ago I put a wheel wax/sealer on my wheels to try to keep them cleaner. Went to wash them today and the front wheels are filthy from brake dust. the rear wheels are fine.
How do I keep the front wheels from getting so dirty so quick. i don't brake hard, so I'm not sure what to do.

Short of having them powdercoated black anyway.

Thanks.

Wash them more often?

Don't use your brakes?

Park your truck in the garage in one of those air tight bubbles?

I coated mine with Cquartz, but any good sealant/wax will work. A good OTC choice is Collinite 845 Insulator Wax. Frequent cleaning is the most important thing...I prefer Griot's Garage wheel cleaner as it's very gentle yet effective.

yeah, but I don't want to change brake pads, cause the ones on there are pretty new.

Brake dust covers. I'm not sure these will fit.

When your brakes need to be changed... switch to a better brand. Don't really think there is much that you can do till then. Also have to understand nothing stays clean. Ntbad. (Not to be a dick) use your brakes, your wheels are gonna get poppy. Especially if you have cheap brake pads!
