Wheel brush

I was wondering what others are using to clean there wheels. I finished removing all the baked on brake dust from the inside and metal polish then waxed. They look like new.

i would like to keep them that way. I bought on wheel brush, but it doesn't fit under the rotor sheild to get all the way to back of inside wheel.

Was wondering what others are using.

Thanks, jjp

Getting all the way back and all the way around is going to be tough. Normally I'll just take each wheel off to clean it once a year. Then I'll wax the back of it so the road tar doesn't stick to it.

Wheel woolies! Better than most spoke brushes. Last pretty well for the usage they get. You can try the raceglaze xl or the usual ez brush, but I LOVE my wheel woolies.

Most of the wheel brushes do an excellent job at clean the outside surface of the wheel, but don't able to completely clean the inner side small pores of the wheel. Wheel woolies are the most effective way to clean wheels completely from inner and outerside. They are very easy to fit anywhere.

Daytona Wheel Brush a little pricey but worth it. And mothers wheel brushes work great for the face of the wheel and are cheap.
