Clean front wheels without buying dust shields

Dust shields work well but are a pain when rotating tires front to rear and rear to front. There is an excellent brake pad that doesn't have black graphite in it it so it doesn't make the front wheels black. They are called Rotex Gold Pads and they work great with excellent stopping power. They are availble to fit all models. P.

My solution is to quick powerwash the wheels every couple perfectly Makes them real shiny/clean looking too.....

Not to dissuade you from the brake pads, however, there are no issues in rotating tires front to rear and rear to front with the Kleen-wheels in place.
The direction of rotation remains the same.

Now, if you want to rotate right to left, that's a different (and painful) story.
