Removing brake dust?

I have a chunk of buildup of brake dust on my front wheels. It is baked on to the wheel.

I had someone tell me with an abrasive compound and a toothbrush, I can get maybe 75% of it off with a lot of time and patience.
Another person told me, there is a heavy duty acetone, that you put on the brake dust, and it scrubs right off with a tooth brush. Acetone sounds dangerous for paint to me.

Any insights?

My 2nd option would be to plasti-dip my wheels to cover up the nasty brake dust. Would the brake dust affect the outcome of the look of the wheels after being pasti-dipped?
