They do however give you confidence that nothing will get scratched. My EZ variant is far more usable and easily gets between the barrel and the caliper, BUT, I worry about that variant 'scratching' the paint. In summary I use the Microfiber brush for the wheels with the exception of the caliper area where I use the EZ - I know more brushes than you can imagine and I haven't added the lugnut cleaning brush!
Ahh the humble lugnut cleaning brush, are we talking

A round detailing brush

The Dodo juice nut plug or

The Wolfgang Recessed Wheel Lug Nut Cleaning & Polishing Brush

The second 2 are quite unique the Dodo one is better value tho.

I to have a bit of a brush fetish and have all sorts in my line up

It felt like i was using a cheep sponge on the end of a stick it was heavy and it wouldn't shift around the barrel of the wheel as well as the ez wheel brush and it doesn't get into places as well as the ez brush also it took longer to clean the wheels with it i wouldn't advise anyone to buy one but at the end of the day i feel like i have wasted £37!

Cheers for the reply - was worried it might not have got between the calliper / barrel on mine, but don't think I'll bother looking at it any further.
