Look in the GM parts department. You can use what they use.

I use optimum power clean. It's safe at any dilution for any part of your car including paint. Doesn't get much better than that.

Adam's APC works great in engine bays, on tires and in wheel wells.

That was a Montana Boar's Hair Brush. Any wash media can swirl paint if used incorrectly, but Boar's Hair, when used properly will not scratch paint.
