I don't know what others use, but I use good old wheel cleaner that I use for my chrome wheels on my show car. I prefer Meguiar's but any good wheel cleaner will do. Use a wheel brush to get the area where the brake pads make contact with the wheel. If the wheels are really dirty, you may have to take the wheels off the bike so you can scrub them better.

In addition to the above is there rust on them? If so here is this tutorial http://bikeride.com/rust-removal/ . Also I have heard of using aluminum foil? Also not sure if this would work for your rimns, but
http://forums.bikeride.com/thread-896.html . I have not really got to use this stuff yet but plan to in the future.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
