Brush for cleaning spider monkey wheel slots

Hey, just thought I'd share a brush I found at the local auto parts store which you can also get on amazon that is perfect for cleaning around lug nuts and also works great for cleaning the slots in the spider monkey wheels. Much much faster than trying to thread a towel through there.

Amazon.com: Carrand 92019 Cleanmates Lug Nut Brush: Automotive

Re: Brush for cleaning spider monkey wheel slots

I have 10 of the cheapest utensils you can find to clean the slots. My fingers.

People who spend more than a minute and a half with anything other than a wash mitt you use only on wheels and some soap and water are either not cleaning the wheels often enough, and/or are wasting a lot of time.

Re: Brush for cleaning spider monkey wheel slots

I use a dedicated wash mitt with soap and water as well.

I wouldn't have a problem with using a brush if I could find one I like. The problem with the above is that those bristles are wrapped around twisted wire (or at least the ones I saw were) and you have to be careful not to apply too much pressure and end up with that wire dragging on the wheel.

Those Wheel Woolie brushes would seem to be a better brush as there's no metal.

I'm more concerned with having a better ability to wash the wheel barrel itself, as with the OEM 20's you can really see back there. I think the Wheel Woolie would be good here as they can be bent to get back in there.

Here is the brush I use for wheel cleaning LOL. I know most people cringe when they see that car wash brush on a wheel but the summit wheels are polished alloy and uncoated so no harm done on the polished look in 2 and a half years so far.

Re: Brush for cleaning spider monkey wheel slots

I use these, and they work perfectly for the monkey wheels.

Two Micro Fiber Wheel Wands - Cleaning Tools - Wheels & Tires - Car Care - Griot's Garage

I also use their clearer exclusively....very happy with both.

Re: Brush for cleaning spider monkey wheel slots

Those wands look nifty but I am with the other poster, my fingers...I buy those soft cotton gloves and turn them inside out since its usually softer inside and just soap my gloved hands and give the rims a good fingering

Re: Brush for cleaning spider monkey wheel slots

I use a microfiber cloth and my hand for most of the wheel work....the small wand mentioned above fits in the small holes where my fat fingers do not.

I also use the lug-nut brush they sell for the area around and behind the lug nut wells.
