Your wife probably has a point but as I also do this at the time of winter wheel swap my wife is used to it. The wheels will look a lot better and are much easier to clean now.

No, I did the same recently. You just can't get them properly clean whilst they are on the car.

Used Neilston tar and glue remover and cif to get them clean then gave tem a polish with Autoglym car polish to put a sheen on them.
I work out a yard which also has a valeting company and the other day his supplier was in and I asked him to show me some of their products.
Got Tar & Glue remover & Tyre dressing.

I do them at winter and summer wheel swap time. I don't like dirty.

Nothing wrong with this Vanduara, I had my wheels off 2 days after pick up to get a good layer of wheel wax applied. Makes wheels a lot easier to keep clean

OTT for me, but I admire your thoroughness. I only get round to that level of cleaning when swapping winter rims for the summer ones (and vice versa).

One thing I love about the 21's on mine is how easy they are to clean, car shampoo is all's that's ever needed. Even with the size of the brake callipers the size of the wheels is easy to get right inside of the rims.
