What are you using to clean your wheels?

Put some VMR 810's awhile ago, but today was the first time I've had to clean them. They look great, but man are they a PITA to clean compared to the 264's I was running before! How do people clean these things? Is there a special brush or preferred technique you use? I'm all ears...

Sonax Full Effect wheel cleaner + your favorite brush or sponge (lots of options, I use wheel woollies), then Armor All Wheel Protectant when they're clean. Sonax will blow through most things so very little scrubbing is required if you do it semi-frequently. Some people prefer wheel wax, but it's more work than I'm willing to do for wheels.

I also use Sonax wheel cleaner. Really works great and requires minimal scrubbing after application. My 207M wheels are a pain to clean and need lots of different brushes to get between the spokes.
