Suede is one of my least favorite surfaces to clean because it can be a bit sensitive. For maintenance purposes try to make sure you're hands are clean and avoid having lotions, creams, etc. on your hands. For cleanings I would use a very soft brush like the DI Brushes Horse's Hair Upholstery Brush and wipe with light pressure. This should help break up and remove most loose contaminants trapped in the wheel. In general you don't want to wet suede so I avoid using water or cleaners whenever possible. If it's really dirty though take a soft cloth and get it slightly damp and spray a little bit of the 303 Cleaner & Spot Remover on it and wipe the stained areas. When you are done blot dry it with a dry cloth and then brush it again to help remove some of the moisture and make sure you leave the windows down so you can get some ventilation in there and it dries quick.
