I like wheel woolies, and there's a range of sizes available. Was recently recommended the Daytona Speedmaster by a pro detailer so may give the small one of that a go. Bristkes are very soft so there shouldn't be issues with splashback.

What wheels you got, multi spoke with thin spokes, wheels with 4 or 5 large spokes etc?

Whats your current method of cleaning your wheels

What parts of the wheel do you want to clean.

Ill give you an example.

I have 3sdm 0.05's that are coated in c5 my routeen is.

1) Spray discks with BH atom mac

2) Foam all 4 with diablo wheel gel in a dedicated foam lance.

3) rinse of Diablo

4) get my soap bucket with a diluted mix of AF revolution

5) Clean backs of wheels (barrels) using a halfords microfiber noodle wheel stick/brush

6) Clean faces, lips and around the spokes with the streetwize monkey MITT (its a god send for wheels)

7) clean lug nuts, writing, around valve stem and center car with a soft detailing brush using the water from my bucket

8)clean tires using a wilko bumper brush and some soapy water from my bucket

9)rinse

10) spray with AF aquacoat and rinse again

11)Dry

I was thinking this the other day as decent brand brushes are like triple the price of the counterpart bodywork cleaning cloth. Most don't seem any other parts than a big standard 'brush' bang wheel brush on there and it's twice the price. I'm after something decent but deffo not paying more than you would for a mitt ect. Seems the new fad at the mo wheel cleaning.

@Rian I like the look of that mitt. I've seen similar in Halfords, but the pile didn't seem deep enough. How soft/deep are the noodles? Is the mesh on the back soft? I've got gloss black wheels and would easily mark if the mesh is at all rough/aggressive.

Here's the one from Halfords for comparison:

I love their wash pads and mitts and that brush does look really good but £36, blooming heck that's a lot of money for a wheel brush.
