    What kind of rims do you have? Stock? Aftermarket? On stock rims, I have had HUGE success with SOS pads that you use to clean grease off of cooking pans. If they are aftermarket, use the Meguiars wheel cleaner, it works like a charm, just be sure to use a towel and wipe the rims off once you rinse the cleaner off.

    I've never had a problem with them scratching the rims...just don't use a lot of force, and use TONS of water....the blue crap washes off

    Car washing solution and water works good for me and I still have the stockers. If that doesn't work, use some simple green.
    I have heard some people use WD40 on their wheels with great results.

    I hear simple green and a toilet brush from the $0.99 works wonders.

    I just went to my Subaru dealer for an oil change, and my car always came back washed and vaccumed, with nice, clean rims.

    i have a lot of luck with car wash soap and elbow grease. I made a baking soda paste, one time, that worked like a champ. That's about all I've done, though.

    If you use any type of wheel acid be careful make sure you wet the rime and leave the cleaner on for less than a minute
    Dawn dish detergent with a dish brush will do the trick safely

    If you ever have the time (such as if you rotate your own tires), cleaning them and waxing them will do wonders to keep dust off.

    Hot Wheels

    PepBoys, Pink bottle, stuff is called Hot Wheels (seriously). They make 3 or 4 different kinds for any wheel finish. Per above, I buy the original stuff they came out with (pink bottle). Works really well
