Royal brown. Trust me. Sonax is good but expensive. Royal brown is stronger and cheaper

As has been suggested IronX or Sonax (take it to a local DIY car wash, apply to wheel surfaces, agitate with a (Daytona) wheel brush and rinse with the hose)

autogeek.net & detailedimage.com, to name just 2 vendors, or try a Google search to find a detail supplier near you.

CarPro Trix. An Iron and Tar remover that works incredibly well on wheels, better than IronX or Sonax for occasional use to remove stubborn buildup. It's absolutely incredible.
