not huge.. only 17inch but the the design lobang big... so normally i use hand oni..

Even though the lobang is big, big brushes cannot go in because either have disc rotor/caliper or the drum there blocking the space.... smile_blackeye.gif

This is my favourite brush system. The brush on the far left is my failed effort trying to imitate the woolie brush by using MF material.



The flat MF brush is my favourite inner wheel brush at the moment. I would prefer it over any of the bristle brushes in my arsenal. The brushes that I almost always reach out to are the flat MF brush, round head brush and the MF glove. The rest of the brushes including some not shown are 'situational' brushes.

Before I got my brushes, I tried that also but failed too..... smile_wink.gif

After touching the mr. clean's brush again, I end up buying it.. bristles not so hard so I think it is safe for mild brushings smile_thumbup.gif softer than CarPlan's brush.. Haven't test it though.. now I have to find smaller brush for the lugnuts..

Haha, you wont find one on the market, its the MR J Limited Edition Series, LOL. I have been searching for a solid MF glove for ages but couldnt find one so I googled, read some guides, and sew myself! Kind of crazy especially I am someone do know nuts about sewing. After a couple of hrs, I manage to make myself a glove with lots of lobangs, but heck la, as long as it gets the job done. It is super useful especially for cleaning the back of the wheel. Not ideal for the face of wheel though. Some pics of the glove in action;
