BBK/Wheel Cleaning

What do you guys use to clean the wheel well behind the Big Calipers?

I'm looking for a nice brush that will fit in about a half inch width space.

Thanks!

You can try both sizes of the detailing brush that DD sells:

I actually have this brush. Ordered it last week, but never used it. It's pretty big I'm afraid it wont fit in the tight spots, and they don't sell the smaller size. I was trying to see if anyone has used this on ZCP style wheels with a BBK.

this brush will do the job. i use it on my 220m rims and i can even put them in between the small gaps between each spoke. just be careful to do your brushing at an angle because we you start to take this brush out of the barel it will spray back on you.

You have the full size one right? Not the mini?

If so then thanks! I'll just keep this and not worry about having to return/buy a different brush. Which is optimal hah.
