    Nice brush for cleaning rims

    5/5 Tom Bruce - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wheels Brush for Car Auto Motorcycle Bike Tire Rim Scrub Washing Cleaning Tool This little brush is a great item to ensure the tires/ rims are nice and clean and shiny. The handle is rather short, made of plastic and comfortable to use. The bristles are pretty soft and don't scratch the chrome when used. It reminds me of the look and feel of a toilet brush. The head of the brush is pretty wide and it's easy to get it into the smaller places on our tire rims. The brush is easily cleaned after use by running water through it.It has a whole in the handle for drying/ storing., January 12, 2017

    Great at getting in between the rims!

    4/5 Tony - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Wheels Brush for Car Auto Motorcycle Bike Tire Rim Scrub Washing Cleaning Tool Brush works at getting grim off my wheels without getting my hands dirty. Previously i used a towel which was ineffective and got my hands wet and dirty. This is a stiff and rigid brush aimed at getting the tough oil, grime, dirt and other items off the wheel of the car. I just add some soap and scrub away. The handle is a little uncomfortable to hold for long periods.

    and after a couple cleanings the wheels looked good as new

    5/5 Josh - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mothers 05824 Pro-Strength Chrome Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Misc.) I had a set of summer wheels that came with my car when I bought it that were chrome, and they were a pain to try and clean. The previous owner never cleaned them, and the dirt/brake dust had built up on them and soap/water wasn't enough to get them clean. Bought this spray (along with Mothers Detail Brush Set), and after a couple cleanings the wheels looked good as new. Did a great job of breaking up the dirt/brake dust that had built up on the wheels after months of not being cleaned. It did take a couple uses on each wheel to get them clean, but like I said the original owner never cleaned them so there were layers of dirt on them. I wash my car every week or two in the summer, and one quick spray with this stuff got them clean after that first time.

    Don't buy this - more trouble than it's worth!

    1/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mothers 05824 Pro-Strength Chrome Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Misc.) I was really hoping this would work like the tire shine products do - spray it on, wait a bit, and then hose it off. Not so! The product drips down the wheels, and leaves hard, grimy deposits as streaks and spots. I had to spray it on and hose it off THREE times to get reasonably clean. And even then I needed to apply a brush to the wheels (as I usually do) with a BUNCH of elbow grease to get rid of the black spots and streaks. Much harder to use, and less effective, than dish soap. Oh, by the way - if you do buy this (which I don't at all recommend), realize that there are two versions of this product: one for chrome, and one for aluminum. Apparently, if you buy the one for chrome, and use it on aluminum wheels, it will EAT THROUGH THE ALUMINUM! So be careful what you purchase!

    Makes chrome rims look like you spent hours detailing them.

    5/5 John - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mothers 05824 Pro-Strength Chrome Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Misc.) If you live in snow country, you know that you get this scum on your wheels. No matter how much you polish the wheel the salt starts to pit the chrome. Reluctantly I used this because no mater what I did I could not get the chrome looking nice on the flat surface of the rim behind the spokes. This is where you can see the width of the rim. This stuff really surprised me. Make the chrome look like I spent hours with steel wool and polish. I had no idea that it would be so effective.Heed the warnings. This is for chrome, not PVD "chrome" wheels. I have not used it on PVD wheels but the PVD process is like a paint and does not react to the salt like chrome.

    I hope I just received a bad bottle. If this is the case

    1/5 A.S - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Barrett-Jackson Chrome & Metal Polish - Chrome Cleaner, Metal Cleaner, Aluminum Cleaner, Wheel Cleaner - for Premium Car Care, 9966, 10 oz. (Automotive) I believe the product I received is very old. The substance is very thick, powdery, and chalk-like. As a result of its powdery chalk-like nature it did not flow from the bottle. I had to remove the cap and shake the bottle to jar loose the product. Yes, the product says to "shake it" before use and I did so extensively as I walked to my car. I hope I just received a bad bottle. If this is the case, I still have to question quality control.
