Wheel cleaner

Hello everyone, new to the forum. I just bought a 2017 Daytona Charger. What does everyone who has these specific wheels recommend for a good wheel cleaner?

Soap and Water..way too easy to screw them up with all the different cleaners available at the parts stores (I've seen guys use "Mag Wheel Cleaner" on painted rims and ruin them..same thing using cleaner made for chrome)

Agree. All modern wheels are painted or clear coated so it's just like paint, would you spray wheel cleaner on your paint to clean it? Didn't think so. This whole wheel cleaner business is one hell of a marketing racket imho.

Soap and water. If that is not enough, soap water and a good _soft_ (boars hair, wool, etc) brush to agitate the brake dust. You can also used a good All Purpose Cleaner (APC) if that does not work. Personally, I use Meguiars APC mixed 4:1 and spray on wet wheels. The key to keeping wheels clean and using minimum "effort" is to clean them often and keep a good coat of sealer on them. I skip all of the "special" wheel sealers and use a good synthetic sealer.... usually. I put a ceramic coating on my Charger wheels.
