I recall that Harrington (mail-order with rediculous prices) has a 
special brush that was pictured with a mesh wheel behind it. You'll still 
ahve to poke at every crevice, but having the right tool may make the job 
easier (vs. a tooth brush).

As for the Armor All tire care thing (is that you're talking about?), 
it's suppose to be safe with all kinds of wheel finishes. Personally, I 
use Eagle 1 cleaner -- although I must say the mist created while 
spraying is quite unjoyful.
