Just ordered a set of these. Has anyone used them and can report on them?
It's so hard on my bad back to clean my 11" deep wheel barrels.
Do these really help? Had a 4.9 out of 5 rating.
Can't wait to see if they make wheel cleaning a little easier!

Wheel woolies are great. I use them and have had different ones over the years.
Who did you buy them from? I use Adam's Polishes .
If you need a lesson on wheel and tire cleaning , hit me up.

I got these. Don't usually order things like this on Amazon but the reviews were very good.

Back when I had rims that I could clean the barrels of, I would use a microfiber duster I found at the local Kroger grocery store:

This is awesome. Been using these for years - works great, is soft so no scratches and its narrow enough to fit between the spokes. It won't go between the 6pot brembo calipers and devil rims though. Just found that out recently. It will fit between the regular 4pot brembos and the rims for a full 360 clean.

I have 3 different size wheel woolies ;) Although my wheels make it relatively easy to clean the barrel and between the spokes. They have changed the design since I got mine, mine are all black and quite fluffy

Those look cool; would be useful on my GF's Highlander. Those wheels are a nightmare! :mad: I can reach all the way through my Heritage II's by hand, so no need for them on my Challenger. :cool:

Thanks for the link!

Cheers,

JD

Looks like it would work.

Yes, the spot between the 6 piston Brembos and the rim (carbon black option) is where I am trying to get to.

Yes, the 3 piece kit is what I ordered.

Those aren't actual Wheel Woolies, but I imagine they are just as good

I've been using this one for years, long enough to clean the deep barrels on my 11" WB wheels.

I love them and they work great though I like Mantis love Adams. The benefit that might make them better or easier to use than the ones you purchased are the ones I use are angled. The angle seems to really help getting all the way to the back of the rim and any hard to reach spot. They really keep the rims clean. Use should like them as they are better than just using a big brush (I use both for the best cleaning job).

I use Wooly Wormit and Chemical guys car wash soap when cleaning any wheels on the inside. No problems with wires or something to scratch wheels. Hot soapy & water kills the brake dust with this tool. Then I use a microfiber sponge on outside of the wheels.

Great, I think I'll grab a set. I have Adams' Polishes Wheel Woolies and I can always use more. Look inside my garage, you can see them hanging on my Adam's Tire shelf.

I use a microfiber towel wrapped around a wooden paint stir stick. It allows me to clean the barrel part of the wheel. For the outside part of the wheel, I use the microfiber towel and if the dust is fairly light, I use Maguire's Waterless wash or wax or Ceramic Detailer. If the dust is a little heavier, I use a car wash soap mixed in a half bucket of water and a wash mitt.

" wooden paint stir stick"
Great idea! My tire woolies won't fit between the front caliper and the barrel. A flat paint stir stick for a 5 gallon bucket would be perfect.
See ya, gotta go to Lowes!
