My old wheel brush works well on my last car. It is hard to clean my HL with a different rim design/style. I was thinking the motorcycle wheel brush for hard to reach areas. What are you guys using to clean the wheels?

I wrote about this in the Cleaning the Highlander thread....

Lots of good info in here!

The best and easiest way I found to clean the holes in the wheel design is using a Cobweb Duster head brush.

You just need the head. They usually have a small handle like piece you hold on to.

Other brushes might do. The key is 2 parts....1:to find a bristles that has soft brushes. 2: The head has to be small enough to get in small areas.
And so far, these Cobweb brushes have fit the bill.
They are about $5-7 dollars, and I'm sure when someone starts marketing them for the auto industry, they will be sold in Red with a carrying pouch for $19.99, and promise to be superior to anything out there :)

I have used such brushes as Shragon before,
The Cobweb Duster takes over the need of multiple brushes. Also works faster doing so.

Its large where it needs to be....
Give it a spin with soap and water on the face of the wheel, and then shrinks down to an inch for the small parts, AND, It expands back up to clean the dust on the inside of the wheel along the lip, which is not easy to do with any other brush.
(If the type of cobweb duster you get has a short handle attached to it, it would even be easier to clean the inside of the wheels.)
