    Default Cleaning wheels... I hate it...

    Any tips and tricks? I hate doing wheels. Right now I use a detailers long brush (there is a name for it but I can't think of it, looks like a long feather duster with bristles). I also use soap and water and a microfiber mit to do the outside of the wheels. Any one step sprays that actually work? Any help other than just good old elbow grease?

    Ive tried probably a dozen products and nothing works as a spray on/spray off that Ive tried. God made private detailers for a reason, and I take advantage of them. Wheels are the primary reason I hate cleaning my own cars.

    I love everything about cleaning my car but the wheels. I just despise it. I guess I need to mentally get over it and embrace the monotony and the back breaking BS of it and change my attitude.

    I use Adams as well and I really like Meguiars also. All the detail clinics I've been to say do the wheels first. I found that old socks work really good for cleaning. Your hand is in the sock and you can get to all spots usually very easily. For baked brake pad that is stubborn I have to use a soft brush.

    I despise cleaning my cars but at least I learned how to do it easier, better and properly from detail clinics.
