understood. soap and water ain't gonna take off brake dust blackened wheels. I have never actually seen any wheel damaged using engine degreaser. Have you? Many of these statements lack actual fact backing them. Most wheels are NOT painted. They are a baked powder coat finish which is very durable. engine degreaser should not be left to dry on painted surfaces as it may cause streaking. the wheel however is not gonna magically dissolve into a puddle of goo because it got a little degreaser on it. My wheels actually look great and are none the worse for the cleaning.

YMMV,
