Great little brush for alloys

Post by Dbvwt on Mon Jan 28, 2019 2:50 pm

I’ve had various wheel brushes over the years but this cheap brush that I bought at the weekend beats them all, gets in between the spokes and does the face of the alloys very quickly.
Also was great for the retractable step, black plastic around the mirrors, recessed front fogs etc.. I’m going to buy another, one for the wheels and one for the van.

I've recently bought one very similar from Halfords, not had chance to use it yet. Main advantage of this shape is being able to reach right back into the spoke corners.
The problem I've always had with wheel brushes is the small amount of oily greasy stuff that gradually blackens the brush and eventually renders it useless for the purpose despite still retaining bristles.
Yes, it should perhaps be cleaned after use but it really defeats the object if you have to spend time cleaning the brush that you have just spent time on cleaning the wheels....

We have had a similar brush for quite a few years now for cleaning the cars alloy wheels. It does do a cracking job without s scraping ones knuckles!
