                Depends how badly the brake dust has stuck to the rims but for about the best non-acidic wheel cleaner get some Bilberry.
                My Revolutions had 2 layer of Poorboys wheel sealant and a layer of Collinite 476S wax and the brake dust is starting to stick now 6 months on....car is in my garage getting its winter paint protection (claying done, Zaino next...) and the wheels are coming off to have some more protection added like before although i will have to clay them i think but most of the stuck brake dust has come off with the Bilberry.
                Once the protection is on you will only need shampoo+water for a number of months (if you do a few layers on them).

                  the makers of the safeguard (is it simons??) do a good wheel cleaner that comes in a spray form, comes out like white foam on the wheels....

                  u leave it for 2 mins and rinse off and it literally pulls off all the brake dust and dirt with it, brings them up beautifully
