A bit like saying what is the best wax?

What wheels are you cleaning and what state?

Strong acids and alkalis have their place, as do bleeding fallout removers as does shampoo for protected wheels

For general use a concentrated alkaline one like Auto Alkalloy is quite handy, you can vary the strength of the solution to suit the job at hand. But the ideal in my view is having your wheels protected so you don't need fierce chemicals every time.

I have my wheels sealed with C5 so soapy water and my wash mitt does me. BH Auto-Wheel is brilliant though, I’ve also tried Infinity Wax incinerate, which works well, but it was so strong it burned though the bottle I decanted it into lol
