Default New paint and waxing?

I am about to finish painting my wheels and was wondering about waxing when it came to keeping brake dust from sticking on. I am painting them white, so I already know it is going to be a pain to keep clean. Is it worth waxing them? Also, since they are just painted should I wait? I thought about not using an "aggressive" wax at first but some of that spray on stuff, what you guys think?

Use a body shop approved sealant. Don't wax them for about 60 days. The gases have to escape from the paint that's why they tell u not to wax ur car...

^^ what subi_boy said. And yes use a sealant not a wax on your wheels, all that ferrous metal and dust from your pads will bring the scunnion on wax. That way you don't need to reapply every week.
