Default Nice little detailing tool

This past summer, my son (car detailing nut ), gave me a nice tool to clean the lug pocket on wheels with exposed lugs. I never saw one, till he gave me this one.

It works fantastic! You would not think it would make much of a difference, but surprisingly it does.

I have been wanting to share it for some time, but kept on forgetting.

Looks good. Here's the one I got from my Corvette forum. It works great on any car and the center foam ribs are replaceable. Fits right over the lugs and with a couple twists, the lugs and lug hole are both cleaned at once. Never been caught with dirty lugs holes yet.

I guess it depends on the finish of your wheels, but I wouldn't let any sort of bristle brush near my wheels (black chrome PVD).

Vlef; although your answer is somewhat logical; although your answer is somewhat funny; it is really important that you take your meds EVERY day!

This is really great tool for cleaning the lug pocket on wheels which are sometimes difficult to clean thoroughly. Can you describe actual price and best place for buying it? I want to buy one. Thanks!

As far as the bristles, they are very soft, and no way would hurt your black chrome finish. Besides it goes in the lug well and does not effect your outside finish.

My son found it at Meijer. Not sure if any of you have that store near you. it is based in Grand Rapids Michigan, but is in a few states.

I'm sure you can Google it, and find one.
