Just started doing some research into this since I have a white GT 350 the brake dust that builds up on the side and on the rims after taking it out for a day is ridiculous. Has anyone done this yet and if so what brakes did you go with?

Im always cleaning brake dust from my wheels on my gt350.  I know exactly what you are going through.  Not sure if there is a cure.

 Their are several pads out there that  do not generate that black residue depending on what your needs are street,track etc. Hawk, Baer Xtreme pads sell them & I`am sure there are more.

Yeah I am just looking for a street pad so it is at least not as much as I am generating right now.

I've had a few cars with bad dusting issues and have tried Hawk Street and EBC Red Stuff.  The Hawks worked great in a lighter car (2007 Mini Cooper S) but not so well in a heavier ride.  I run the EBCs in my Genesis that uses 6-puck Brembos and they're A LOT cleaner than the stockers.  I don't think you're ever going to eliminate the dusting problem, but different pads definitely shed material at different rates.  Cheers!
