FW1 Racing Formula Fastwax is the most epic car cleaner ive ever used..it takes brembo brake dust off like its nobody's buisness..it is a little pricey though armor all also makes a product to help keep break dust off..it works in case youre skeptical hope this helps

Costco all purpose cleaner or simple green works good. Just require some scrubbing.

simple green is not a wheel cleaner but works well. if you do use it don't let it sit on your wheels like you do some other wheel cleaners.

i've used a bunch of different counter brands and they all work similarly. i usually just pick up what is on sale.

It might just be me but I hate all "armor all" products and think they are junk. Meguiar hot wheels is probably the best bang for the buck but it can do some damage if left on a wheel.

Sonax is very good stuff and my #1 pick when I detail a vehicle. Its pH balanced so its not as dangerous but you still have to be smart about it.

I just bought a bottle of P21s wheel gel. Not bad but not as good as sonax
