Hey guys, was wondering what do you guys use as a wheel brush? Especially ones we could buy locally. Had a Saga FLX SE to clean up and seal over recently but it seems that the wheels are a little hard to clean. The design of the spokes can get a little too close and I think I need to get a better wheel brush to clean it up good. Was wondering if there's any recommendations especially ones I could get locally?

Here's a picture of the wheel just for reference, it's the hollow area between the spokes that's a little hard to clean.

Hi Grexer not only u need a soft brush! Make sure it is not nylon base

Try a micro fibers brush ! I would want to damage this 18k wheel with others! Safe and effective cleaner help as easier to remove contaminations and stains ! Safe for yr rims coating and health


Have fun in a safe and effective way

Where to get the micro fibre brush that you show? Well.. I already have OPC as my go-to cleaner so I suppose it's not a problem with the cleaning part, just the matter of getting in between the spokes. ;)

I think I got it from the house hold and utensils shop near market

Just remember use the least aggressive way and not to scrubs hard

Soft bristles baby bottle brushes works for me......
Yeah.. I remember you mentioned about it in AW forums, but ones I found usually not long enough for the width of my wheels(usually around 7-8")

Thanks for the info. Well, I know I shouldn't be using too much force, just trying to fit into the slot. I was using one of those wheel brushes that looks kinda like a paint brush, but the space between the spokes are a little too narrow and deep for my brush to go in.

Oh....if you need to go all the way to the back, you can try looking for these (I think I've also posted these pictures quite a few times already):







I've been asking around in our small group of enthusiasts if any of them can find it in Klang Valley and one person found it at a hardware store in Summit USJ. Btw, I got them from kb and always pick a few up when I balik kampung.

Either that, or you can try to 'extend' the bottle brush handle.......

I got a few of similar looking brushes from Giant, paint accessories section, RM10 for 3 brushes of difference sizes. You can see a couple of them from the pic below.

Yup, I posted one of these in AW forum that is why he asked me too, but told him you got them from KB....:listen:

Ace got the triplewax brush. Looks a bit short but works for me.
Will be okay if rims are not the wide type, but still works for my 6.5J rims

Triplewax brush


Compare the size.....

Well.. I think I forgot to come back to this topic. Was wondering which shop or any specific area of USJ to look out for the brushes Krismas mentioned? ;)
