If so, how? (enough separation to do so from the front;from around the sides; from underneath (i.e. raise it); every x washes you remove and do it; etc?)

oops -- meant "rims" not "tims".

I wish I could say often, but unfortunately, I don't have the facilities to jack up the car and take of the wheels. If I did, I would do it on the regular.

Well, I've had my new wheels on for 3 weeks and I can't get to the insides (Fikse Profil 10s), but do see buildup in there. The only way I can think of to get there is to take the wheels off or reach around, move the car, repeat...

I wanted to figure this out sooner rather than later since I figure the buildup is still possible to get off...

Every time I wash my ride. The Visions are so easy to clean. I can get my whole hand between the spokes.

I just use some of that liquid brake dust remover... if you spray it on far enough and let it soak, it'll get rid of most of the junk.
