Best wheel cleaner

Can any one give there reccomendations of a good wheel cleaner?
I've been using 5L of auto-smart's "smart wheels" lately but it's almost ran out. I think this is really good to be fair especially as you need to dilute it and it's only £20 so I'm after something reasonable on price, but I like to try new thing preferably by the 5 litres

I don't want anything acidic, and I already have a fallout remover.
Cheers!

What he said. I use it at minimum dilution with a foaming trigger and always had great results.

Maybe....but you can actually buy it very easily - getting hold of AS gear depends on your rep being prepared to come and see you for what will probably be a fairly small order. I know some will, but anecdotally it seems quite a few will not.

ADS coconut rims. Dilutes really well and it's the best smelling wheel cleaner out there
