Wheel Cleaning

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I don't normally use any type of brush, always been wary of them on my wheels and I guess always had the luxury of never having wheel with lots of close spokes on.

 

I currently use a wash mit to get behind the spokes and inside the rims on my prets and although this is a little bit of pain (for my hands) it works relatively well.

 

I have however been looking at these, just mainly for the bit behind the calliper and to give me hands a rest. Any one used these and if so what size is best?

With my new wheels coming next Friday (also prets) I will be so worried about marking them, so please warm if you think these brushes are a bad plan!!!

 

 

Thanks

They look good.  Should be very kind to your wheels and spokes, and a guard to protect your hands from the knuckle shredding brake guard.   

 

Wheel Woolies are my goto wheel brush - all 3 sizes get used for a variety of jobs - wheels, tailpipes, front grills, numberplates, etc.  Absolutely brilliant detailing kit.

And the spoke back one for the obvious.

If I could have only one size, it would be the large one.

I've got a similar one mate and it gets right to the back of the wheel. Good bit of kit.

Thanks for the replies. I did see the wheel Woolies also. I presume both of these have no metal bit in? 

 

I do do need a brush for my front lower grill also, good point!

 

hmmmm what do

Wheel Woolies have no metal parts at all.  Don't think these Gyeon ones do either.

Wooden?  Most Wheel Woolies have plastic handles, mine all have and previous ones.

😂  Your observational skills are on another level.  😂  If they were wooden they wouldn't last 2 mins being dipped in water constantly, lol.

I’ve got a set of Wheel Woolies and they’re brilliant, for less than £35-40 they make washing wheels a breeze, no shredded knuckles, no metal bits inside to mark the paint!! I find them very useful.

I'll be honest I have been using one of these the last two washes, seems to get the job done, I have cadiz alloys though, so different to prets, so actually this post may not help you at all - I'll climb back under my rock.......

I use one of these and have done for ages. I just make sure to rinse it often but it’s perfect for the prets! Goes all the way to edge of the inner rim and fits over the caliper. Also use a microfibre mitt for the spokes.

I really do rate the wheel woolies as well but also love the dodo juice wheel sponge

I don't rate any brush much behind that awkard bit behind the spokes on prets tbh , either that or a wowo wheel mitt  would be my choice with a large wheel woolie , i'd ceramic coat with Gyeon rim before you install the new wheels as well to make life so much easier 👍
