Best Wheel Cleaner

Looking for a really good wheel cleaner that will also help keep brake dust off longer in between washes. Stuff starts accumulating after just a couple days after cleaning them right now.
Thanks in advance.

Soap and water.
I put a coat of wax on mine and it makes it easier to clean.

^^^ Agree

I have not found a cleaner that keeps the dust off, but...

I have found that if I wax my painted wheels when I wax the car the brake dust seems to be less, and it comes off easy with a dry microfiber or a duster between washes.

Switch to ceramic pads. That will take care of the dust problem. Especially if you have replica wheels... stay the hell away from wheel cleaner. Car wash and water and that's it. **** will eat your finish over time.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
