    I've got the yellow Megs 'pointy' one and it's a big help on my multi-spokes. I looked at that one you mention, but it was too big and bulky to get through the spokes.

    personally i wasn't too impressed with the megs wheel brush - the toilet brush type - i found the bristle were too soft and they got bent out of shape far too quickyl, so the brush lost it's girth!

    never used the hard bristle megs wheel brush, as duncan said, too big for the spokes.

    you might find that a cheapo wheel bristle brush from a supermarket is just as good, and then use an old washmitt for the face of the wheels.

    I would not use a wheel brush, but I suppose if you can not get to the difficult bits then you might not have the choice. I use a sheepskin wash mit and can get to all or the front of the wheel and most of the back, [ I have a sheepskin mit to use on the wheels only].

    i use a sponge cut in half...works really well on my sri wheels...
    sometime agitate the wheel cleaner with a normal wheel brush and then clean with soapy hot water with a sponge!!

    yep...i use it on the mondeo and i rarely scrub the wheels, just spray on and pressure wash off, gets rid of 95% of the brake dust, and that's good enough. even watered down 4:1 it's pretty strong stuff.
