the bristles of the brush will get in all the little spokes of the corsslace
Boy, am I glad to hear this info. I struggled last night with my crosslace rims for over an hour using everything in the house to try and get down deep in those holes. Nothing worked. I was using a little Tide mixed in a bucket of water. Useless. I eventually got an old toothbrush out and went hole to hole scrubbing the gunk out. These rims hadn't been cleaned, probably ever, so the gunk was pretty serious! Finally, the rims look pretty good (I couldn't scrub every hole, so I'll have to return later). That brush looks like the answer! Also thought about a bottle brush, but that'* not really good because you can't slide all the way through, unless you remove the wheels from the car.
Once I get them clean a little weekly touch up should keep 'em shinin'!
Thanks for the info!
PS - I use Eagle One Wet Shine
that I apply with the same shop rag, and store in an air tight box (diaper wipes box) so the magic fluid is always on the rag. Works great and lasts about 2-3 weeks depending on weather, washing, and who knows what.
