On my oem 18s I just spray on a general wheel cleaner and then pressure wash off which gets rid of maybe 40% of the grime. Then I use a small microfiber towel and a bucket of regular car wash soap to hand clean the wheels. Although with crazy spoke wheels like the 666m you will def need some type of brush tool to get in all of the crevices.

Once you get them nice and clean, have them ceramic/quartz coated. I did mine using gyeon rim.

Gyeon Iron Q2M, best Iíve used by far, several reviews on YouTube. Iím sure you already know this but just in case: never ever use chemicals on your wheels when theyíre hot, or even warm.

Edit: just now noticed this is a 5 y/o threadÖoh well, canít hurt I guess.

If theyíre ceramic coated - mine are.. donít use anything but soap or a product that wonít affect the coating.

I used regular soap and this:

It bends and stays in you desired flex for hard to reach places around the wheel. Also comes with bolt cleaners as a little extra.

I just use the same Meguires waterless car wash I use on the rest of the car. I donít have access to a hose at my townhome. I make sure to avoid overspray onto the rotors. Looks good enough for me but Im not terribly picky.
