aluminum. what do you mean "stuck up dirt?" first get some wheel cleaner and a course wheel brush or equivalent - not wire! let the cleaner sit for about a min and brush and rinse. repeat the action as much as necessary. if it IS just dirt - elbow grease, time and cleaner. if the dirt you are talking about is "brake dust" it sounds as though it is caked on. Then you will be cleaning for a while. if it doesn't come off, good chance it is baked on and most likely the clear coat that was once on there is worn off due to heat and the reaction from the brake dust. best to post a pic but this is my hunch.
