    Just thought id have a quick ask around if you guys have found an easy way of cleaning the 19" 5 Twin Spoke Alloys.
    As they have a channel that runs behind the spoke, i find it very hard to get that clean.

    Thanks

    I bought 2 of those......stopped using them because they flick the water everywhere when pulling back out the wheel spokes

    Bought a gyeon microfibre one instead.

    Lmao, I bought one a couple of weeks ago and had the same problem. Water goes goes everywhere. And yes they do look like a loo brush!

    Even after using Bilt Hamber Auto wheel, rinsed, the brush with shampoo, rinsed, snow foam, rinsed.. When I came to dry the alloys they were still dirty, but looked clean to the eye at least haha.

    I've got one of these ezdetail brushes as well as my incredibrush, use it one our defenders wheels as they are a lot tighter and the bog brush bristles flex a lot to get in, although it's not super soft.

    I use the EZ Detail brush on the V Spokes, haven't had any issues. Was recommended to me by the guy who detailed my car.

    Them V spokes have a matt/powder coated finish so probably won't mark as easy as the wingers lol

    Jeez, £40 is pretty pricey! I went with incredibrush which is not only cheaper but if it is anything like incredimitt....haven’t unveiled it yet though so can’t say for sure, but gets brilliant reviews all round

    I also use the Wheel Woolies, and find they are excellent.

    Wheel Woolies for me too - the three different sizes really come on handy for getting everywhere.

    I just put a couple of layers of heat shrink on the handles of my wheel woolies so as to not damage the spokes when washing from side to side between them .....
