Cleaning Powder Coated Wheels?

I was wondering If any of you guys use anything special to keep your powder coated wheels looking nice and new. I hear that some products can actually damage the coating on the wheel. So lets have it what do you use and how long have you been using it.

Just a normal car wash on mine, I just ensure to use a non abrasive sponge/rag. I stay away from any spray on wheel cleaners and tire cleaners as the chemicals in these can affect the coat, mine are satin black and still look like the day I got em.

Adam's Green Wheel cleaner. I don't think many things can eat through powdercoated paint.
