I have found P21S wheel cleaner (not the gel type, just the regular type) used with a scrub stick to be the best brake dust remover out there. I haven't used it on my 997 yet but I have some volvos that get excessive dust and it works great. But if the dust is 'baked on' or pitted into the alloy good luck. i don't know anything that removes that. maybe someone else knows the answer.

Try "Simple Green". Spray it on the wheels and let it sit a few minutes before washing with your choice of detergent. I always wash my wheels last when I wash my car (and I never let them get that dirty.) Unless you have REALLY neglected your wheels this works great.


Sorry I just noticed your post said "track day" Disregard my response

+1 for P21s for regular cleaning and heavy brake dust - but Simple Green is cheaper and often enough to do the job. If you picked up hot tire chunks that have now cooled and are stuck to the wheel (common after advanced group track sessions) you need to pull as much off by hand as possible. Clean up whatever is left after preceding steps with a good cleaner wax. Really stubborn residue may come off with Tarminator or another tar remover but I use that as a last resort, preferring to use the mildest solvent possible to avoid damaging the clear coat.
