Going to give Brown Royal a try this weekend. Been having the same struggle as the factory wheels / pads make wheel cleaning take longer than washing the rest of the car.

Autofinesse iron out to eat up the brake dust / fall out...Let it work it's magic for a couple of minutes or whatever the bottle says...In a WELL VENTILATED area...Follow that with Sonax wheel cleaner for wheels and tire.

Hello well I use a mild abrasive car polish for my rims or Brasso metal polish for those grimy old yellowing stains in fact most car paint scratch removal polishes will work remember what you are actually cleaning in most cases is clear laquar not alloy or metal ,hope this helps - Ben 👽

Clean them, Polish them, coat them

Then soap and water will work very easily
