I would avoid all acidic or alkaline based cleaners if used regular as they will damage stuff over time.. They are ok for removing initial heavy grime but not regular use..If your wheels are lightly soiled i would use Rhino Goo it's what most in the MotoX world use to clean their dirty bikes with and is biodegradable,PH heutral and totally safe on wheels bodywork etc etc, a little agitation with a brush and they come up sparkling...

Be wary of regular use of IronX or fallout cleaners (they turn red/purple on contact) they maybe safe, PH neutral in the bottle but they turn locally acidic in an exothermic reaction when they hit metal or metal brake dust particles...Again OK for now and again but not regular use IMO...

i clean light soiling on mine with the Rhino Goo stuff but in a nutshell for regular light soiling cleaning you are looking for anything that says 100% "bio degradable" on the contents to be totally safe, no acidic,alkaline,fallout/IronX based cleaners will say this...

Going to give Bilt Hamber a go seems a popular choice.

Valetpro bilberry for me, even diluted 1/10 it's pretty good, 1/2 ratio for heavy soiling. Worth applying a wheel sealant, makes life a lot easier. I use Poorboy's and once a clean is due, bilberry and pressure wash it off, don't really have to contact wash it and even if I do, soft mitt will do the trick.
