Same here.

I actually use baby shampoo to make my wash water. I wash the truck first (two bucket method) and then the leftover soapy water gets used on the wheels.

I keep my wheels well waxed and that helps the brake dust from sticking so much.

Am I the only one who goes with a sponge and scrubs every nook on the wheel? And I wash the truck every week, so small kine time consuming. lol

For the tires I use a brush with the soapy leftover water after I wash the truck.
