Default Cleaning stock sport wheels

Cleaning the stock sport wheels for the most part is pretty easy, but the little triangle is such a pain in the a**. So looking for suggestions on easy or best application to clean in the tight areas on these wheels.

Thanks.

This is a Meguiar's wheel brush (I forgot the actual name of the product, but it's by Meguiars). I use that to clean in the nooks and crannies of the wheels. I think it does a pretty good job at it too. The best part is that the tip itself is slightly bendable so it can go around to the backside too and around the brake calipers. They might be discontinued though, so I'd look around for something like it.

Looks good, I went shopping this morning and did not see anything like that, but that looks exactly like what I need.

I love this website, so I'm going to recommend some of their products.

If you're looking for some detailing supplies, look into their Ultima product line.

i use Prima Slick liberally on a soft paper towel and just wipe off. i only drive my car on sunny weekends.

on my dd's, i use Griot's boar's hair wheel brush with the long handle. as for detergent you can use their BBS approved wheel cleaner, or do like me, just use their CarWash shampoo. works great.

Maybe I'm a little more "hands on" with my girl, but I spray wheel cleaner on it and then come back with a cotton sock, yes a regular sock, and slip it over my hand. This way, I can run my hand into all the 'tightest' spots. I know what she likes .
