What do you use to clean your wheels?

The ones on my Fiesta got really bad after using Wonder Wheels. I now use bilberry, although only had my Focus a few months.

I think some rust is inevitable on the locking nuts as I believe they are steel.

Hi, my Mk4 Mondeo's locking wheel nuts quickly rusted after using wonder wheels but my Foci's are perfect because I haven't. Quite clearly wonder wheels isn't suited to unprotected metal or alloy and it states so.
