Shampoos/Cleaners for Ceramic Coated Cars

What products do you all use for a maintenance wash on your ceramic coated cars? Specifically, what wheel cleaners are safe to use if your wheels are ceramic coated? Can you use a degreaser? Any ingredients I should stay away from?

I know for shampoos I should be using a ph neutral product, but what about wheels?

Thanks!

CarPro Reset for shampoo and CarPro Reload once in a while. For waterless washes in the winter, CarPro ECH2O (with a dash of Reload). A diluted mixture of ECH2O, distilled water and a small amount of Reload also make a great QD or touchup spray for ceramic cars

Reset can work for wheels, else use any other PH friendly wheel cleaner if very dirty.

Thanks! Any good PH friendly wheel cleaner recommendations? I'm lazy, so I just really want to find a spray on rinse off cleaner...

Something as cheap as like Meguiar's Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner is acid free and pH balanced and is under $8. Sonax Wheel Cleaner Full Effect is under $15. All available at auto stores, Walmart or Amazon.

Worth is for easy maintenance. Nothing sticks to it.

That said I Would not recommend taking a coated car to a car wash.
