What are people using these days to clean the alloy wheels. The one I have is ok, but I have just washed the car and the wheels are not as clean as I would like. Now I know some of the "dirt" is engrained brake dust, but it just won't come of, so I would like to try something else.
Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am just in the process of giving the car a massive clean, wax, polish etc. The wheels are definitely letting it down now.

I use TFR (traffic film remover) which is used mainly on HGV's. I bought a 25 litre drum of it for about £20 from a supplier to the HGV trade and it lasts years. I use an empty trigger spray bottle from my wifes kitchen suppliesto apply. Ok not everyones solution but it works for me and I am also able to supply several relatives foc
