What soap to use to wash matte black Miro 111 wheels?

I haven't washed my car in 4 months (like the dirty look haha) but had some free time yesterday i used a soft brush and just water to clean the wheels but after after drying the car, all the brake dust became more appparent and shows streaking. i emailed Miro and they said to just use soap and water but couldn't recommend anything specific.

Will using Meguiar's Gold Class shampoo and conditioner be ok?

Yes, any car specific soap will be fine; however, it may not be strong enough to clean wheels with embedded dirt, grime, and contamination.

Buy some Sonax wheel cleaner. One of the best wheel products out there.

I'll definitely follow these advice. I've never had an idea how to clean my own car since I bring it to the car wash everytime.
