After seeing some ruined powercoated wheels with wheel cleaner, some safe products?

After seeing some ruined powder coated wheels with wheel cleaner, some safe products?

I am sure a OEM powder coated black GTS wheel can handle pretty much everything off the shelf, but the images of paint dripping like a horror movie wants me to tone down my normal wheel wash routine of Sonax, AMMO NYC, or Armor All if I am cheap.

Suggestions?

I keep my wheels sealed so when I need to clean up, I just use car wash soap and some of this:

I ceramic coated my wheels after I got them powder coated and the majority of dust/dirt comes right off when I wash it with soap and high pressure water. After it dries I just touch it up with some quick detailer and they are good to go.

The 359's always seem to collect dirt in the channel behind the spokes the most.
