If you do not dilute the Simple Green that could actually ruin your wheel so be careful with that and you probably need some wheel polish like Mothers.

I use meguirs car wash soap and water with a microfiber pad and it works fine. Then I usually follow up with a little bit of spritzer wax.

A piece of advice. I had a friend that used to use simple green on his painted wheels (red) and eventually it bleached them to pink. Be careful with that stuff. If your wheels are painted then just use dish washing soap, and elbow grease. Then wax them. The next time they'll come clean alot faster. Sh** nephew I wash my car at least once a week and give it a rinse and shammy every day. A nice final rinse every day keeps it fresh but won't strip off the wax. If your hardcore. Do the underground super secret sh** and use piano wax on your car. However don't even think about doing it on a hot surface and it will take you at least 3 times as long. The shines nuts though. The drawbacks time, and doesn't last through washings. Good luck

I had that problem too with my Intro Forged Senekas...but I think mine is worst, after a snowstorm, my lips were filled with salt and the salt got into the rims and when I tried using Mother's, as recommended by Vince from Iforged, it didn't work at all. Now my rims are getting refinished and clearcoated. Even Kerry Getz had the same problem too.
