i would spray that armor all wheel cleaner - which i found works really well
and spray nine and just use a toothbrush to go over it..

spray it off, then when i wash the car, i go over the wheel again with the mitt and to dry, i use a high pressure air gun that blows like crazy to dry them and the engine bay...then go over that with a soft terrycloth towel.
