Rim Cleaning

Hi All,

Just had all the brakes replaced about 1K ago. Decided the X5 needed a bath so got to cleaning her. Got to the rims and the back ones cleaned up nicely. The front ones, however, seem to have some brakepad residue that does not want to come off. The back ones came clean with just water. Tried soap and water on the front with limited success. Any suggestions on rim cleaners out there? Thanks.

I here Sonax Wheel Cleaner full effect is really good.

I bought some a bit ago but have not used it since my wheels never go more that a week without a complete wash.

I'm hoping some friend with really dirty wheels shows up so I can test
