    I wouldn't use a brush as these are painted wheels. I just use a microfibre towel with some meguiars detail spray wax.

    A good looking girl in a bathing suit with a bucket of soap and a small microfiber towel to wash them, and an air hose to dry them.:D

    Bottom line don't put anything on the wheels that you wouldn't put on your paint. I also use a small CA. Duster for in between cleanings

    None of the above, change out your brakes, and your wheels will stay clean....

    I use a microfiber towel and a bucket of car soap, if really bad, I spray the rim down with Spray nine, then wash. The S9 works good to get the backside of the rim, esp behind the caliper. It is not perfect but will work.
    Then a leaf blower to dry it

    My wife helped clean my car the other week and I found out that her hand is the perfect size for cleaning those hard to reach areas.

    Wheels can't stay perfectly clean!

    I bought a microfiber "wand" type thing... basically a cone on a stick, and the microfiber pad is removeable. Forgot to use it yesterday when I washed, but it should get the job done! My hands are tired after reaching into the pockets by every one of the little spokes!

    The best so far is a thin sponge. 1/2" thick about 6" x 4". Took a couple of days for the bruises on my hands to wear off. I'm liking the idea of carbon ceramic brakes. But the price needs to come down a lot.

    The price is cheap around 100 dollars for front and back.....but the big benefit is the time you save

    Sonax wheel cleaner and Daytona brush. The Daytona brush is good for the barrels and another super soft brush for the face/spokes. Ive used this combo on raw polished aluminum wheels with no issue.
