How do i clean flat black rims?

I have some flat black rims, and ive neglected them lately haha. They are turning gray on me and i have washed em with water, dish soap and a sponge a couple times, still faded looking. Im scared to use a brush on them because i feel like it'll chip or something.

So what would i use to bring the black shine back?

I heard Comet works wonders on steel wheels. I've only seen it on polished steel though.

Or maybe just use regular old wheel cleaner. Dish soap is defiantly not meant to shine up steel.
