    Thanks for the info...won`t get to use them until Spring most likely but good to go.

    Discovered 2 new Wheel Woolies brushes and an unopened Speedmaster wheel brush in cabinet as well, kinda forgot about those. Oops.

    Although the Speedmaster might be more trouble than help given experiences noted above. If I pull that thing outta a wheel and get covered in splatter, its gonna go sailing across the garage.

    Well, that makes two of us, even if everybody else loves the things.

    You mean "when", not "if"

    Re: Suggestions for Detailing and Cleaning Brushes

    Didn`t want to post links, and didn`t feel like writing descriptions as I already put in enough work with the photos. All of them can be found between Amazon and Autopia.





    (Application of Tire Shine^)



    (Big version^)







    (Have the four pack of the white Drill Brush, love them)








    (I have the small skinny version that is the same length^)



    Below are the brushes that I currently want to add to my collection:


    (Would like two of the short handle version^)








    *I do own more than the ones pictured above, some are hard to come by, and some are the little secrets that set me a part from others. In total, I have about 25 DIFFERENT detailing brushes, and multiples of some. The last time I counted I had around 35, I think.

    Is there a local source of those angled brushes?

    Suggestions for Detailing and Cleaning Brushes

    Looking for some info on the correct brush to help in cleaning behind wheel spokes / face of wheels

    Is that the correct brush to use? Is the any most cost effective solutions out there?

    I prefer the straight ones to do barrels. Iíd look for the smaller angled one for behind spokes

    Yes to clarify I am looking for one for behind the spokes. Is the one I showed in the picture the best option, or are there most cost effective options out there?

    I donít if itís most cost effective but I feel woolies are the best. Iíve never use the angled ones to be honest. I know smaller ones work best for behind spokes. Big 2 ft small 1 ft

    Agree completely about the angled ones, I never use mine either. But I suppose it`s a matter of the wheel design and personal preference.

    Noting that I do use my Wheel Woolies at every wash, I absolutely still need to get in there with a small mitt or else I`ll miss a lot of the soiling. And to do the back sides of the spokes I *MUST* use a small mitt/sponge, simply no other way to do it (I tried the Angled Wheel Woolies a few times and/but they took forever and still missed a *LOT*).

    I got my little mitts (don`t see them in the latest handbook, but others sell them as well) and sponges (pn# 11838) from Griot`s.

    Coatings=crack- Yeah, those oughta be good for getting in there.

    I gather the MF isn`t too gentle for this (most likely indicating you don`t let things get as bad as I do between washes ).

    See how different people prefer different things?!?

    IMO it`s probably good to just get a set of them so you can see which ones work best for *you*.
