I agree. My A4Q is now 3 months old with 8000kms and I have used Mothers
3 step system on the car paint AND the wheels. Rewaxed the wheels a couple
of times. 
Remember, the wheels are clearcoated and need protection in the same way your
paint does.
With a good coat of wax on board brake dust washes off easily with a sponge
and some ph-balanced car wash such as Meguiars or Mothers. Glistening and
shiny wheels just like new!!
