    There may be some grease/oil on there, which the paint will not stick too. I know that most refurb places like to acid dip them first. You can buy some wheel wax (i think thats what its called), which does not allow the brake dust to stick as much.

    I have also heard that normal car polish can improve things.

    Give em a damn good clean yourself, as if it's your bodywork, then loads and loads of wax or polish.
    You need to get it very smooth and shiney.
    As Ross said, wheel wax is really just normal car wax (x2 in price)
    That will help when cleaning.
