Any car wash soap should do the trick unless they're really stained or full of brake dust.

I like Wolf's Clean and Coat, spray it on, let it dwell for 1 minute rinse off. Wipe down any remaining residue or dirt (wipes right off) and you're rims are not only cleaned but coated.

If you need something very strong take a look at Sonax Full Effect.

I have chrome rims on my truck and washed them with CG's citrus,and then used Iron-X on them .They were shiny and clean for a while after that.But it's always good to check with the manufacturer and see what they say.Good luck

Good point, the 2 I listed above are safe for chrome finishes. But it's good to check before purchasing any product for chrome wheels, clear coated wheels, etc...

Putting on a sealant on top of cleaning them isn't a bad idea though and can add a layer of safety and prevent some buildup.
