What wheel cleaner do you all use and what one would you recommend for cleaning wheels which have been refurbished and painted? As most of you know ive been getting a set of rs7s for my focus, they were professionally painted and I'm more than happy with them. On my last alloys Ive always used wonder wheels which I rate highly, would you recommend this for wheels which have been painted? Or should I try something else?
Thanks in advance :)

Been using Billberry Juice for the last couple of years.  Very powerful non-acidic cleaner and it smells lovely too!

Dragons breath is brilliant. Stinks rancid until sprayed on, but you smell nothing once it's washed off.

Be careful though! Sometimes non acid means they are high alkali, which can be just as bad lol.
