I guess this would go under Body Exterior for want of a better place. Anyway, I found a good cleaner to get rid of the brake pad dust that just clings to the alloy rims. It's not found in your auto parts store, but you'll find it at most supermarkets. It's called Zap Professional Tub and Tile cleaner (or any variation of that). Spray it on your wheels and let it sit for about 10 minutes, then hose it off. Really stubborn stuff you might have to wipe off with a wet cloth, but I just cleaned a really ugly set of alloy rims in less than 30 minutes with most of that time spent letting it soak in.
