EZ Detail Wheel Brush Maintenance tip

I don't know whether any of you guys still use the EZ detail wheel brush, but in my experience, the rubberised tip can be easily damaged leaving exposed steel to happily scratch up your alloys.

I have had this problem and canned my brush for a while. I then came across this little find on the internet and it works a treat. Moulded into a ball, I cut off the old rubber and wrapped this around the tip. Let it cure for 24 hours and since then, no problems at all. Been on now 6 months. Just forgot to tell you guys about it.

I'm not affiliated in any way by the way.

Seems to be on sale regularly and that is the time to buy it

Or you could contact EZ direct in America for a bag of tips for free,and when they get lost in you contact them again and as an apology they send you a free full set of their brushes

Yes 3 brushes free know that’s what I call amazing customer service

Sugra is Awsome stuff though great for making iPhone cables stronger, Can’t say I’ve had a problem though with my EZ detail brushes

Kite end caps also do the trick. I've been using them every time the original cap wears out.
I'd say they're actually harder wearing than the original caps. Loads available on eBay

^^ This. They are almost exactly like the original one. I replaced on ages ago, popped a bit of glue on and it's lasting better than one on when I first got it.

The drier I got it off was one of those that hook over a radiator.

I have two EZ DWB's and at first was really happy.
With Gloss back wheels they will scratch 100%. No different to a car wash on the panels.
A set of Woolies have cured that.
Gloss black wheels are stunning, but they are delicate.
On other wheels I find the EZ brushes OK.
As for wheel arches, nothing better that an EZ DWB for me.
