If you want more cleaning power go with something economical and proven for your maintenance washes like P&S Brake Buster, which can be diluted to be very easy on your wallet.
+1 here.

I have not ceramic coated my wheels, and even still I don't need to use wheel cleaner every time. I couldn't get over Sonax's smell, so I use Meg's Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner instead. But I only use it every 2nd or 3rd wash, depending on how much/hard I've driven the car in between washes (and I wash once or twice a month, depending on how much I've been driving and how nasty the weather is).

A year into ownership and this seems to be working for me. I do need to get some better wheel brushes.
