    If they're somewhat dirty and has baked on brake dust I'm a fan of Meguiar's Ultimate Wheel Cleaner. On just lightly soiled wheels I'll use Zep Purple Industrial Degreaser mixed lightly. For something heavily soiled and build up I use a wheel acid, but I don't recommend that much. BTW that CG Diablo is basically just glorified gelled up car wash. I've used it before, not impressed at all. Pretty safe to use though.

    I use a 1/2 table spoon of murphy's oil soap an 1/2 table spoon of cooking oil into a spray bottle with water, shaken as you go. Cleans great and leaves a nice shine. Its an old detailers trick, been used by many and works for me. My wheels on all my cars and trucks for years always look great. Been using this method for 30 years.

    I was extremely disappointed by the Chemical Guys wheel cleaner. It did absolutely nothing. I agree with the poster above that it seems to be just gel car soap. I’ve been impressed with all of the Chemical Guys products I’ve tried except for this.
