Default Mothers Wheel & Wheel Well Long Handled Brush

Anyone use this?

I have RS Spyder wheels.

I know many use Wheel Wollies for $55+
https://www.autogeek.net/wheel-woolies.html


Wonder if anyone has tried this Mothers brush for ~ $10.

Looks like it can get into narrow surface areas plus reach into & clean the barrel from the larger openings.




Ive also seen videos with a car detail guy using EZ Detail Brush (Big & Small) but, he warned about as you pull it out getting sprayed in the face with dirty, wet brake dust! He wears eye protection. No thanks!

We've got a shorter handled version of that Mothers brush:


. The brush head is too big for the RS Spyder wheels. I'm looking for something smaller, but I'm not into spending $55 for it!

i have the short handled version and i use it for tires (+ Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner) and for the face of the wheels and sides if i can reach (+Sonax or Meguiars Wheel Brightener) I use wheel woolies but they're falling apart after 5-10 uses for the crevices and wheel barrels.

I dont clean my wheel wells...

I have both the long and short handled Mothers brush and it is too big to clean my Porsche wheels. Works great for the wire spoke wheels on my classic.

Two weeks ago I got an Adams 45 degree wheel woolie and it works great for cleaning the entire barrel behind the spokes.

I bought an Incredibrush https://www.microfibermadness.de/en/...t/incredibrush when I got my Macan with 21” turbo wheels (I think @MDJAK recommended it). It is a good brush but pricey. I found it online from a car detail supply shop but cant remember the name. Your spyders look great but am happy my 991.2 has easy to clean carrera sport wheels

Do the Carrera Sport wheels have the same color as your GT Silver or is there sill some contrast with the body paint?

I have Spyder wheels and I absolutely hate cleaning them - takes forever. The bigger brushes don't fit in the smaller spokes, and the smaller brushes are useless with the bigger spokes. I usually enjoy detailing too... just not these wheels.

I use a combination of all three when cleaning my Spyders:
Wheel Whoolies
Daytona Speedmaster Wheel Brushes
Mothers wheel brushes

The worst thing in my world occurred. My favorite Elephant car wash burned down. How can a car wash burn down you say? I am awaiting that answer as this is a very blue state of Washington.

I think the spokes are slightly darker/grayer than GT silver body but difficult to say for sure due to polished spoke edges
