I just had a go at my wheel with the Detailed Online Foaming Leather Cleaner and a microfiber cloth. I went over the wheel 5 times with varying pressures ranging from rubbing it in quite hard until the foam disappears to gently rubbing it in and leaving it a few minutes to penetrate. Not sure if I'm doing it right or the results are as good as they get but although I can just about see a difference the wheel is still fairly shiny.

Left side untreated, right side treated:

From my experience:

Nothing will get into the wheel and remove oils, dirt, grubbiness and restore the matte finish like a horsehair brush and your cleaner of choice.

Rubbing 'over' with cloths, micro-fibres etc just isn't the same deep clean.

****Use an old bed-sheet etc to protect rest of car / dash etc though. Can get a little bit of fling !

Good luck.
