    Review: Wheel Woolies

    Review: Wheel Woolies and Boars hair detail brush.
    “Wheel Woolies Spoke Wheel Brushes – available in large (18 inch) and small (12 inch) - enable you to clean behind your wheels’ spokes with ease. The head of each Wheel Woolie Spoke Wheel Brush is constructed of super soft, densely packed fibers that remove stubborn brake dust and road grime with virtually no effort. Pair a Wheel Woolie Spoke Wheel Brush with your favorite wheel cleaner and you’ll have a recipe for clean wheels!”(autogeek.net)


    Today I got a chance to try the wheel woolies on my 2001 TL, my TL was my lucky winter beater and I have not cleaned the wheels since October of last year, when I reviewed the Wolfgang Uber Wheel Cleaner. Review: Wolfgang Über Wheel Cleaner


    So today was a chilly day(high of 40) and I am preparing to take my 2001 TL to Florida next weekend where it will sit at my parents place for 3 month till I move back to Tampa.
    I gave the whole car a TRIX treatment and then washed with CG citrus wash.


    So here are my thoughts on the Wheel Woolies, Love them!!! First thought was it felt so soft that I couldn’t imagine they would do a good job but I was wrong, once wet they have excellent scrubbing power. Also it made it really easy to get between the caliper and the barrel without getting splashed.
    Then the boars head brush made cleaning the lug nuts a breeze, it fits perfect and did a great job of breaking up brake dust. Also ended up using this to clean the fuel door and exterior trim.

    Daytona brush or Carrand wheel brush were my go to for cleaning wheels, but the Daytona brush can have some splash back and same for the carrand. Even though the Daytona is flexible, ergonomically the wheel woolies win here with the angled handle. I will now use my Daytona for exhaust tips and cleaning the grill.

    For the wheels I first sprayed TRIX and let it sit for about one minute or so then sprayed the wheels with CG citrus wash with a foam sprayer.

    First my apologies for not snapping an after picture, when I took the pictures off of my Iphone right now I just realized it.

    TRIX started to dry so I sprayed the other wheels with CG Citrus wash.

    Again my apologizes for not taking a after pic today but this is what it looked like, but finished with Blackfire CS and Pinnacle Black Onyx.



    Feel Free to ask any questions.

    Thanks for the review. I was looking into these as my daytonas are now used for engine bay duties. I had the same concerns with the 'splatter'.

    How long have you had the original? Is it holding up well.

    I have the Medium Woolie that I use for my Opti-Guarded wheels. It was recommended over the Daytona for Opti-Guarded wheels on the Optimum Forum.
