I accidently found that K & N filter cleaner does wonders on wheels.

One day i was attempting to clean some wheels after i'd had a few too many, and used this k&n cleaner, and it worked very well. The wheels were alloys, and had all the usaul alloy symptoms.

I don't think its real dear. If you have some already then your onto a winner.
