Best wheel cleaning tool?

Does anyone hate cleaning wheel/tires as much as I do? Its a necessary evil however to a nice detailed ride.

I'm just wondering if anyone has a certain detailing tool/rag/sponge, etc. for wheels that makes the process less painful? I know there are lots of tools recommended by different manufactures but just wondering if anyone here has a "tried and true" tool to suggest using.

Meguiars and Mother's both sell a cone shaped polisher for a drill. Just be careful, to much compound and friction will take off the finish.

P&S Wheel cleaner and soft bristle brush work great for me. I use a larger one for the face that I picked up at the local store. I also got the chemical guys gerbil wheel brush on sale and it works great getting dust out of the tight corners of my apex arc8 wheels.

I have also used steam on brake dust caked track wheels, worked pretty good.
