Cleaning 2015 SRT wheels?

I have the darker chrome spider monkeys is I think how I've heard them referred to in this forum, also with red break calipers. Question am I able to power wash these products without risk of damage or should I remain careful with the power washer pressure if so? Sorry if this was a an easy question, I've just been erring on side of caution and have been wandering if it's necessary or not? Thx!

I pressure wash mine, I don't place the water nozzle too close to the rims or calipers just enough to get most of the crap off.

You will still have to hand wash though, I also use Wheel Protectant | Armor All it works really well for me keeps alot of the crap off the wheels especially brake dust.

Then when you get sick of cleaning them, replace the brake pads with Hawk Ceramic ones and reduce the brake dust by 95%
