=========================
I purchase and use the gallon size of this cleaner with a wheel brush
by RubberMaid I found at Target that is safe for clear coated wheels on
the Toyota alloys. Cleans them up beautifully.

I bought the small size first to try out, so I use the spray nozzle
from the smaller size and the gallon for refills.

>From what I understand, aluminum alloy wheels should be clear coated to

minimize air loss, so they should not be tremendously difficult to
clean if you're using the right product.

BTW, I used to use "Simple Green" from the grocery store cleaning aisle
and it worked reasonably well, but over time it seemed to be removing
the finish - that's why I stopped using it, but if you wanted something
inexpensive to try initially for a couple of dollars, there you go.
Actually the DP wheel cleaning gel does work even better for example in
cleaning the inside of the small raised lettering cast into thw wheel
and the wheels do look even better overall with the DP Gel but it
cost's more.
