Wow, this thread is still going. Anyways, I found the best shit ever to clean wheels so forget about the dish soap. It is made by Greased Lightning and comes in a Purple bottle. I got some a t Wal-Mart cuz I wanted to give it a try and I swear by this stuff. It comes as a concentrate so you have to dilute it (about 1 part degreaser to 10 parts water). I also had some work done on my car at a European Specialist and they told me that its the only cleaner they use as well. So give it a shot, the stuff is cheap and it works wonders.

I've stuck rims in the dishwasher. Works not too bad.
Also dishwashers clean engine parts pretty darn good.

ps. Don't tell the wife......please!

1989 325i - RIP due to a knucklehead that rammed the car in the butt doing 50 km/hr while I was stopped at a intersection!!

Not a bad concept for tires. But I would NEVER use that. The chance of the detergent splattering up onto the colour is too excellent and because dish-washing detergent is so difficult and rough it will damage your colour. It would be a smart concept if you were to take off each rim and clean them away from the car. . . . . . .
