Default What to use on powder coated rims?

I just bought new Konig powder coated rims for my car (silver). I need to know is it ok to keep using the Meguiars Hot Rims wheel cleaner that I have been using on the stock gold cross laced rims I have, or will this product damage the powder coating. The rims also have a glossy clear coat finish. Thanks.
