I'm a bit of a detail nut, so you could say i'm concerned about any wash-induced scratches. When I bought my chrome Roush wheels, I wasn't going to play around.
I coated them with CarPro CQuartz UK edition ceramic quartz coating which makes them SUPER easy to maintain. The surface is so slick that brake dust and dirt wash right off with pH neutral Adams Car Shampoo. I don't use any harsh wheel cleaners, just gentle car shampoo.
So off the bat I recommend having those wheels protected with some type of coating or wax to keep things from sticking to them. Otherwise getting the chrome to come fully clean will be a bear. I've had great experiences with CarPro CQuartz UK, CarPro Dlux, CarPro Hydro2, CarPro Reload, and Collinite 845 insulator wax. You will do yourself a lot of favors down the road not leaving your new wheels bare and unprotected.
To wash the wheels, I use a Wheel Woolies brand Boar's hair wheel brush on the outer face of the wheels. Just Google it and it will come up. It is an extremely gentle brush that absolutely will not scratch, yet makes it easier to get into the corners and what not.
For backsides of the wheels, inner barrels, and brake calipers, I use the Speed Master wheel brush. This is another brush that is worth its weight in gold for keeping your wheels looking great. It's the perfect tool for getting the hard to reach inner areas of the wheel and you can bend it to fit around any shape.
Here's my wheels after the CQuartz UK coating...ballin!
This is the Wheel Woolies Boar's Hair Wheel Brush I use.
This is the Speed Master Brush I use for the back sides of the wheel. See how you can bend it to your liking to get into the areas you need to?
