That is the brake dust that is stick in the rotor vents. When I wash my wheels, I spray some Simple Green on the rotors and then take the hose or pressure washer to the rotors and wash out all of the accumulated brake dust.

Thaks guys. Neighbor has a good technique. After washing he uses the leaf blower to dry the wheels. Going to give that a shot.

+ 1 on the Simple Green. Orient gave me this tip some time ago. A lot of that gunk will rinse off. I like to spray on the Simple Green on the wheels and rotors and let it sit while I wash the rest of the car. Make sure you rinse the wheels and rotors thoroughly with a strong jet of water.

I also have a 4hp vacuum that is a warm air blower as well. It has a very strong blast of air and will get rid of all most all the residual water on the rotors.

Then when I pull it into the garage there are just a few drops to wipe off.

I'm a real freak about clean wheels...

Well I tried simple green and the blower and that worked great. But your wheels are super sharp! Not over done, just the right touch of polish.

Awesome. I'm glad it worked for you. Like Loren said you can also use a product like "Rejex" on your rims. It will help keep the brake and road dirt from sticking. Zaino also has a similar product. Check out their site. They have great stuff!
