I've been using concentrated Simple Green. FOr the REAL tough stuff, I refer to Eagle-One Aluminum Mag Cleaner (since I began using Simple Green, I hardly use the Eagle-One product).

@Zjerry - What parts store do you get the cleaner featured in the 2nd pick? That's one of the best "scrubbing bubbles" I've seen! lol!

Question

I use degreaser, but I have had some good results with meguiars all wheel cleaner.

Tip: Make to to read the instructions, most say let sit for an X amount of time. Also please only do one wheel at a time, and keep out of the sun.

If not rinsed off in a amont of time it could damage your wheels.
