I have some soft bristle "wheel" brush that works well enough for the surfaces, but cant get in deep enough without knocking on the wheel. I got some of the Griots Garage branded wheel woolie type things off of Amazon, and recently put them into service. They really are the way to go, and are money well spent.

I actually just use a bug sponge on my wheels.. Ceramic pads for low brake buildup and wash atleast once a month. my wheels look like new pretty much all the time.

Wheel Woolies (3 different sizes), a Wheel Woolies branded brush, and a race glaze brush that is used to clean the really stubborn deposits from the barrels.

Instead of ordering a set of Wheel Woolies that I really wanted, I went to Lowe's and picked up a "multi-purpose cleaning brush" for around $10. Works great and looks very much like the article you mention above. wink

I use a combo of my old microfiber wash mitt and a Mother's wheel brush....and just car wash soap and water. If wax you wheels when you do your car and not let things get out of hand you do not need any agressive wheel cleaners.
