I use an old nasty wash mit, car washing soap, and elbow grease.

I just use whatever I use to wash the car.

If the wheels are aluminum though, you can go over them really well with some aluminum polish. It's a long and tedious process though to do it so that it actually makes a difference.

I shined mine today with the STP Son of a Gun that ran off the tires on to them, just wipe them off good and they shine.

I clean them with dish soap and then dry them. When I really clean them to get tar and nasty stuck on road debris I tahe the wheel off and clean with grease lightning and the I dry and put on a nice wax that I use on the car and it helps keep future debris and tar off for a good while.

I use DWG, same as on the paint. But there are many products you can use. The KEY is keeping them clean so it doesnt build up (weekly cleaning)
