Brake Dust shield for wheels

Does anyone know if you can get brake dust shields to put behind the wheel??? It seems like the brake dust is the worst issue for my wheels.

Not a great idea, in my opinion, the air is supposed to move through the wheel for cooling purposes, it might inhibit the cooling ability of the brakes...

Hi, That is one of the drawbacks with having disk brakes. My Lincoln isn't very bad, but My wife's BMW is horrible. [black dust that embeds into the wheel and can't be removed] And my Safari has drums so my wheels stay clean.
