...."spray on, rinse off" cleaners are simply lazy solutions that typically contain harsh chemicals if left to dwell too long and/or used on the wrong surfaces. If it comes off with your finger nail, you may have some luck with a claybar, polish, brush & APC/soap, etc. Without seeing what you're talking about though and not have the wheel in front of me so I can try a few things on it, its a bit tough to say what exaclty might work or if some of the damage is irrepairable.

there's certain types of chemicals that u can use on the powder coat as well. you can't just spray off the brake dust, unless u plan on spraying them off ever time after driving. there's all wheel cleaner that works, and make sure u only use the soft side of a sponge, and nothing with bristles. you'll end up creating scratches on the coat itself, which cakes on more and more dust, and is harder to take off.
