I might try the rim ice, but fact is that I am washing the dust from OEM pads with plain water and brush just fine when I do on regular bases. It is the accumulation on the inner side that gives me hard time, but this is the wheel that was used for about 50,000 miles and cleaned with plain water and aggressive brush.
Per my experience it is the "spray on, hose off" acid cleaners that do the most of the damages to the wheels. Once they run down to small cavities and dry off -they become permanent.
