+1... often time those that cleans really well might be too strong for uncoated surfaces. We use our engine wheel cleaner for most cases and just soap water for those uncoated wheels with our detailing services. In general, make sure wheels are not super hot to prevent chemical from reacting to heat or simply dry up too fast.

Also depends on what wheels are made of. Something like an uncoated magnesium or aluminum is very easy to damage I know this first hand.
