Hi Dust shields can work but can heat up your brake pads faster and cause wear faster. RJ

It seems that you are trying to keep brake dust to a minimum on your wheels. A better option is to get full ceramic brake pads. They stop the car better and reduce brake dust to a minimum.

I never tried the dust shields But I use this available at most autoparts stores and it repels the brake dust for up to 6 months and you apply it on your wheels when they are clean and dry
