Don't get anything acidic. P21S gets a great review around here but I haven't tried it. Usually I just use a different wash mitt and car soap but it doesn't get it 100%.

I use the P21S Wheel Gel and have been very happy with it. I also use Poorboy's World Wheel Sealant and it is amazing. Brake dust rinses away with water.

Yes, this is an awesome combination.

If the wheels aren't too dirty, I sometimes just use soap/water. Then follow up with some QD on a MF cloth.

PB Wheel Sealant is fantastic - apply a couple of coats of it every couple of months for best results.

I'm using chemical guys sticky gel citrus wheel cleaner. love it. I just got my poorboy's wheel sealant in and haven't gotten a chance to apply it yet, but I'm sure it'll be a great product!

p21s wheel gel is the best we have over here. i only use it for terribly dirty rims because it is so expensive.

i'd just slap a good sealant on. Then, most of the dust rinses off and you can use your car soap to easily degrease the rest

Not sure, but unlikely. Order from George at DetailedImage or Phil at DetailersDomain.

QD = quick detailer (aka, liquid polish, nanowax, etc).

But nevermind, I didn't realize "ICE" was an entire line of products. I was thinking it was just quick detailer, like this stuff:
