I usually use regular rim cleaner from AutoZone, and i scrub for a looong time. Any better ideas with better results? What do you all use? Btw, this is my favorite benz forum out of mercedesshop, and mercedesforum. Thanks!

No, with the bundt rims and to a lesser degree the 15 hole, just hard scrubbing. I use what looks like a large bottle washing brush to clean.

A small sponge with car wash soap is best to use.

I use Eagle One A2Z. It's amazing stuff. But you still have to clean each hole individually. I use a toothbrush and a sponge, cut in half length wise to fit into the holes. Here are some results:

Great results. I use a similar application (toothbrush and sponge) when cleaning my 15-hole rims. It’s such a laborious task, though!

Simple Green and a good pressure washer will do the trick nicely with minimal effort.

Indeed, cleaning the AMG's is a dream compared to the 15 hole buggers.. Although the 15 holers pale in comparision to cleaning wire wheels on the Healey..to get those CLEAN it's an hour a wheel w/ a few different tooth brushes and a LOT Of Q tips.

Here's what I started using after a sumer stint with a cleaning company. On the metal tops of the water fontains we used this dtuff called Deep Luster Stainless Steel Foam Cleaner. The stuff was amazing, strong, yet gently, and got tough dirty out of the way, PLUS left a deep lasting luster. PERFECT. I quit long ago, but never forgot that stuff. I finally got around to going to the cleaning place and buying can of it to clean our rims. Just go to your local cleaning supply house, the places that actually stock JANITORS, and ask for whatever the use as a stainles steel cleaner.[;)]
