Kleen Wheels .... Do they Work?

Does anybody have these on their 3. I have the 5 spoke 17"rims on mine. Was wondering if this will help keep brake dust off of my wheels? Any feedback would be great.

I would advise against them
It prevents the brakes from receiving proper cooling.
Although I haven't had first experience with them, I have read several cases where people developed warped rotors on account of them.
If you're concerned about brake dust, then low dust pads (i.e. Axxis Deluxe Plus) is a better alternative than kleen wheels

I hate the brake dust build up too! I use poorboys wheel sealant http://secure.detailedimage.com/Merc...ory_Code=Wheel now and that does a great job of keeping the break dust on the surface so its easily removed with a light hosing.
