Because during the braking process, the pads wear out, and as they wear, they produce brake dust.

...which is very very HOT.
Strip the wheel down, sand it nice and smooth, apply 3 coats of Wurth wheel paint, 2 coates of Wurth cleal, wait a while then wax them. Wash them once a weel. Wax again as required.
They're still get messed up, but not as quickly and they're stay cleaner longer.
Some people use brake sheilds to reduce this problem. Some peple swear by them, some swear at them for causing warped rotors.

Some of us get harder brake pads that don't produce so much dust.

Some of you can find them. Who has ceramic pads for the cars below?
