Wheel Woolies

Sorry if this has been asked before. I am looking at getting a set of wheel woollies and wondered which ones people recommend. I have been having a look and notice PB & In2 Detailing have and has anyone tried these?.

Depends on your spoke sizes and design of your alloys. I tend to only use the largest on my alloys for cleaning the drum of the wheel. I use an angled one for behind the spokes. The smallest in the set does come in handy for using on my honeycomb grill on the front of the Fiesta ST.

Wheel Woolies

Personally I’m a big fan of these. Wheel woolies they are not. But they are great for doing wheel barrels. As they are flat they fit between the callipers. It’s worth putting a cable tie around the sleeve near the handle as the elastic sags over time.
