TDG blueberry wheels is also a very good wheel cleaner. Strong at low dilution rate for manky wheels. But safe for maintenance washes at 20-1. About £10 a bottle makes it very economical

I like BH AutoWheel, does a great job if the wheels are due for a deep clean. Otherwise just shampoo does the trick when wheels are sealed

What would you all use on unprotected alloy wheels that need a decent hit with something strong?

Before going for the iron removers I'd be looking at either a 50% solution of something like Auto Glanz Alkalloy, or if they were really bad I'd probably try some of the acidic tile cleaner I have for the bathroom grout. Or both!

I also have some brick acid on the shelf which I'd try at 10% dilution first off, if I wasn't too worried about the state of the wheels afterwards.

Astonish Wheel Cleaner. Only £1. With a hard brush it'll shift grime very well!

Light alloy wheel cleaner you say? Cut some P21S TAW w/ distilled water to your satisfaction.
