Get some Wheel Woolies. Makes cleaning so much easier - It really cuts down on the time and you will end up with a pristine wheel, barrels and all.
I'm not sure I understand the point of these expensive wheel cleaners. Maybe if you have neglected wheels, they makes sense. If you clean your car at least once a month, I would think that soap, water and good brushes will have the same effect. I try to wash my car at least once every other week and have never had a problem.
