I just use my meguires car wash on my wheels after I get done washing the car. Also to get a quick clean up when they are not too bad I use the cleaner spray you use on the car aswell. Just how I have always done it.
I do the same. Wash the car, then after use a clean microfiber and by bucket of soapy water, swipe down a wheel, rinse in my clean water bucket, back to the soapy bucket, next wheel. once a month i pull all the wheels off and clean the backside as well. Brake dust + water is caustic, and will permanently damage the finish, so this keeps them healthy.

Don't use a brush, as like your car itself, the paint on wheels will scratch and start to look dull.
