yes, if you look at the bottom of a rinse bucket it is almost always really dirty.

I personally am probably overkill

rinse->foam gun->rinse->

two bucket wash the wheels with dedicated wheel mitt->rinse->meguiars all wheel cleaner->rinse->

two bucket wash with different buckets and two mitts, one for top half of car and one for bottom half, top down wash method, rinsing after each panel so that the water doesnt dry and leave water spots->

use sheeting method to get as much water off of the car->dry car->drive car into garage->dry water that comes out of the cracks.
