With any build up your gonna need to agitate the product on the surface of the wheel. Buy a soft brush and just give it a quick rub. You will be alot happier. LOL The link im giving you is what I normally use and its AWESOME. Make sure the wheel is wet first, spray it on, agitate it, rinse it!

Sonax is the best by far. Check out my thread on it.

I hate cleaning the wheels too, lots of detailed areas to get even with my 5 spoke AGs. I so far have been able to keep up with just using normal carwash / detail spray. I generally wash my car weekly though, its rare it doesn't get washed less than that. I find its easiest to keep up with cleaning the car if you do it regularly. If you let it sit dirty a month+ you are just going to have to put that much more effort into cleaning it.

This is a very gd point. Mine usually gets washed min once a week. Use meguairs ultimate spray wax right after for shine and to make the hard wax last a little longer as I use carnuba wax vs synthetic.

Yep little bits of effort here and there pays off. I can generally wash and quick detail mine before I can fully wash the wife's car. Hers gets washed once a month. Its also white and I hardly drive it so I don't notice the dirt until I'm trying to wash it.
