My wheel brush is coming to the end of its life




I can just about get mine into the wheel if I'm holding it right on the end of the handle . I only need another inch or so


Have you guys got any recommendations for one with a long handle , doesn't have to be fancy or expensive , even if its not a dedicated wheel brush as long as its a brush that'll do the job .

I use that Megs one but it's starting to wear out especially at the thin end.

Guess now you just replace them more often.

Don't know what your wheels look like but I use newly bought loo brushes from a 50p shop on the G and GTV to get right inside the rims. Then Kent soft brush for the shiny parts. On the 33 I used new, old stock 20mm cannon pull throughs (real wool) on a wooden handle.

Like this one but not from them!

Try the KENT MF wheel brush... Blue head, red handle off eBay for about a fiver. Best wheel brush I've ever used and won't scratch.

I bought a Halfords Microfibre Wheel Brush for £6. Handle's long enough and it has a two-sided brush: a mesh side for scrubbing and a "tassles" side for cleaning. It has a removable, washable cover over a 2" square, 8" long foam core. Works good.

One caveat: the internal steel bar running the length of the brush is flat, about 5/8" wide. The bar would bend when applying any pressure. Simply removing the cover and rotating it 90° solved that problem, as the pressure is now applied to the edge of the steel bar.
