I'd just finished going over my wife's 11 year old Peugeot 206 with Meguiar's Gold Class High Gloss Premium Quik Detailer when I realized I'd forgotten to do the wheels.

A quick spray and follow-up with another, softer kitchen roll (large almost cloth feel to it from Wilkinson's**) left the wheels looking like this:
