Brake cleaner. FINALLY a purpose it was intended for. Try to minimize cleaner to rubber contact tho. That stuff is STRONG.

P.S. It will clean most anything you spray it on.

Mine were pretty bad, the clear coat on the wheels was shot also so I ended up using paint stripper to remove everything. I just wax them up now and they stay pretty nice. I also had good luck with Armor All wheel cleaner (probably brake cleaner) it cut through the dust even in the little holes.
