Anybody got any suggestions on how to clean up the back of some 7 year old Antara alloy wheels , I would like them as clean as the outside if possible !

Valet pro bilberry wheel cleaner and detailing brush will do the job well.

I second what Kiego said. Dont be tempted to buy something like wonder wheels which would work but its way too strong and can damage the lacquer.

Third for Keigo's recommendation VP Bilberry wheel cleaner - spray on, leave for a while to penetrate the muck (but not long enough for it to dry!!), agitate with a detailing/wheel cleaning brush and then power wash off the excess. Repeat until you are happy or give them a clay to help remove any stubborn spots.

Don't forget to seal the wheels with a couple of coats of wax/sealant to keep them looking clean and future maintenance easier! I've only used Poorboys Wheel Sealant for this but there are other alternatives out there...

I agree with Baz, Grumps and Kiego.I used the VP Bilberry on my wifes Toyota wheels and it works an absolute treat.
