Best way to clean old brake dust?

Ive got a set of alum welds that have caked on brake dust and road grime. I tried buffing compound and some cleaning products but make did nothing to help. Hit it up woth some 1500 and 2000 grit and wet sanded which was to long of a process. Any other ideas? the were nice and shinny 8mo ago.

Try a clay bar, it worked on removing the majority of the brake dust on my old wheels. If they're really really bad you're proabably going to have to strip them down and repolish/clear coat them.
