Had a quick search but to no avail.

Can anyone advise on the best size wheel woolie to clean the barrel of GTS 20” Spyders?

24”? 18”? 12”? 8”?

Thanks.

I bought this set specifically to clean these alloys. The largest one does most of the work needed i find.

I also bought a set of these to use on the spiders on my Cayenne. I have literally have every wheel brush ever sold and these are the best by far. Not only great for the face of the wheel, they also easily clean the inside rim without removing knuckles and the smaller ones are handy for cleaning the callipers. Just make sure you get the proper ones and don't be tempted but the many cheaper imitations.

If you are looking specifically at cleaning the barrels then the largest in the 3 part set is perfect.

Thanks all. Yes specifically the barrels. I had not too dissimilar wheels on my A45 and I found using a microfibre cloth was best for getting in to every corner and also for cleaning behind the face.

Buy cheap buy twice I was told many years ago so only the originals of course!

Don’t know how to link but google Anachem Automotive. They are a N Irish company making excellent detailing products but also have an agency for Wheel Woolies.

Worth treating yourself to some of their products too as they are great. Hybrid is an amazing Quick Detailer for one.

Thanks again.

I’ll keep them in mind for the future. Currently using Auto Finesse quick retailer and have done for around 4 years. Got nearly a full bottle still.
