I have started using BH Autowheels. I believe the directive from BH is that you only need to use AW every few months. It's awesome stuff but I suppose you don't need to use fallout remover ( which BH AW has) every time you clean the wheels?

In between using AW I just use a good soapy wash and a spritz with Astonish wheel cleaner and they shine.

Any good wheel sealant will help too.

Autosmart wheel cleaner concentrate is better then smart wheels in my opinion. It's just a more concentrated version of smart wheels so dilutes more but it doesn't have the brighteners that smart wheels has. Another good alternative is Kkd brake away. Kkd devils juice is a phenomenal product but I wouldn't be using that as regular wheel cleaner. It's a very very strong acid that needs diluting and should only be used when really needed. Be careful of devils juice on centre caps and wheel nut covers, it can bubble centre caps and stain wheel nut covers.

Sonax All Wheel Cleaner is good, I dilute my SmartWheels only use on dirty rims, going with a car shampoo option for my wheels. FK1000p has been my wax of choice for the wheels off on both cars, so working well.
