    Try a nylon scrub pad with bit of Simple Green (undiluted). Easy pressure.

    What kind of wheel cleaner did you use? I’ve had success with products that have decontaminants/iron removers (turns purple when it reacts with the built up grime) and a brush. May need to go a couple rounds though, looks to be really caked on.

    Some mineral spirits would probably work

    Spray Nine and a scrub brush. I’ve tried every wheel cleaner most stores carry and they only seem to be as effective as normal dish soap/water. Worked perfect on a 2013 RAV that was never washed ever. The wheels are looking new. The cleaner is not super toxic or risky to use.
