This might be miscommunication on my part. I use diluted Zep Orange degreaser for my wheels and it works great. I meant harsh degreasers or avidic based degreasers. As these have their place for tires/wheels that have been neglected I think either a diluted degreaser or car wash soap should suffice.

As long as you don't use harsh degreasers that can hurt the rubber you should have a long life with washing and keeping your tires clean. Collinite is nice for rims if you have them but it will mostly protect from brake dust sticking versus keeping your wheels longer.
