I run white wheels on road and track.... Hot soapy water followed by iron x agitated in.

Or ceramic Coat the wheels, I had my white speedlines gt1 Road wheels done... Makes them so much easier to clean.

Try a little fuel on a microfibre cloth, that should loosen it up.

I find this stuff works well, a few applications and a stiff brush should cut through it. As above ceramic coatings make a huge difference for easy cleaning.

Yep - I had some form of exedy pads on mine. They practically burnt onto the alloys. The oven cleaner was the only thing that shifted it. Nothing else touched it.
