    Keeping the inside of an 11 inch wheel clean has always been a challenge. To really get in there I find my hands work best, but it tears up my knuckles and is not easy. Would love to hear how you guys tackle this problem effectively and how often. What do you use and how well does it work? The more detail the better. Thanks! IMG_7336.JPG

    Some guys use wheel cleaning brushes, like the one pictured below.

    The spokes on my SRT wheels are wide enough so that I can use my hands (with occasional skinned knuckles).

    When ever the wheels come off I give them a thorough cleaning
    Otherwise I reach in with a microfibre cloth and get what I can
    I don’t get near the amount of brake dust with Power Stop pads so it’s not as dirty as when I had the Brembo pads.

    I'm fretting about the back sides of my Red Brembos at the moment until I yank the wheels off eventually and protect them properly. I know you can't see that side but I want them as nice as possible. Like stated, so difficult to get to. My old hands/knuckles don't heal as fast as they used to. :(

    Has anyone found a really effective ceramic spray that would work on the black carbon wheels?

    Here's some brushes that someone might want to try from Griot's Garage. I have not tried them.

    I bet that 45 degree angle one might help. Thanks!
