Default In need of very good wheel cleaner

I finally got myself a set of 10 spoke wheels for my camaro, now I plan on selling my stock zr1 wheels. Of course I want them to look as good as possible, so what is some hardcore wheel cleaner that I can use? I bought some basic wheel cleaner from the part store, it knocked off some brake dust but they are 14 year old wheels and alot is still caked on there. I realize they won't look like brand new, but just want to get them looking the best that they can.

Sonax is really good.

A good wheel cleaning brush is important too. Daytona Speed Master is good.

the hot rims stuff they sellf or like 5 bucks at walmart/autozone rocks. Make one for chrome and one for aluminum wheels. It is legit.

I'll have to give one of these a shot. I thought about using something like purple power or some type of degreaser.

Be careful using purple power. If you use it full strength it can stain/bleach metal and clear coats.
