Alloy prep and clean from start to finish - advice please

While my winter alloys and tyres are on, I have the opportunity to sort my summer alloys while they have no tyres on.
The alloys are BMW style 416, diamond cut.
Would you chaps be able to give me some advice on what's best to use to prep, clean and then protect them, please?
I have some BH Auto Wheel cleaner if that's any good as part of the regime?
Thanks in advance for your help

BH Auto Wheels is very good, panel wipe then sealed with Gtechniq C5 would be my way to go.
Or Carbon Collective Platinum Wheels would be my second choice.
