    Default wheel brush,s

    I was wondering about getting a wheel cleaning brush, but are they any good, do they scratch the wheels, at the moment I use a "wash mit", but there is a little bit of brake dust that is difficult to get off, any ideas how to remove the spots of brake dust.

    I don't use a brush, simply use small flat sponges ( 3 for £1) to wipe the surface dust/dirt off. Foe those stuck on patches, invest in some Tar remover (Autogylm & Autobritedirect), it does the trick. Try to avoid using strong acid but sometimes you have no choice.

    I have tried megs wheel brightener at a quarter strenght it did not move the dust spots, so it looks like some good rubbing is needed then.

    I use one of these mate and there great, they wont scratch your wheels as they've got a rubber cap on the end to cover the metal tip.

    As Davie said - a Megs wheel brush is just the job - won't scratch the wheels but is good at getting in round the back of the rims. Once they are clean get some Wheel Guard from Car Wash & Wax and bang a couple of coats on then a simple wash once a week will keep them sparkling.

    I do as Scott does and I have the Megs whels brush for some areas I can't reach on the inside of the wheels.

    You could always clay your wheels, I do that aswell

    I use a bottle brush (the sort u use for babies plastic bottles), I figured if it was gentle enough for that it would be ok for wheels.

    Don't take my word for it though, I have a company car which does 1-2000 miles between washes (my last car had 123k & never had a polish!! ), I'm not into detailing (what the hells clay ), but I do like to get the car clean when I do get around to it & the brush seems to get into the nooks
