Ultima car care products are very expensive. I a sure their is great quality to them, but can anyone provide experience with these items. I am thinking of taking a plunge for some new vinyl detailer.

Has anyone tried the sheepskin wheel cleaner listed here in the autopia website?

The RX350 does not seem to be producing as much brake dust as my other brand cars. I have less than 2500 miles on it and perhaps that has something to do with it. I have purchased the recommended boars hair brush and the special lug nut brush since they come in contact with clear coated areas. But I am wondering if it is an overkill to buy the Daytona wheel brush which is not required to touch the clear coated areas. The reviews seem to lean towards the Daytona wheel brush. I have 19" rims and the space between the spokes seems enough to let this brush inside. I am looking for an economical solution

wow, talk about bringing back a thread from the dead...

Some common, similar products used for wheel cleaning are the Wheel Woolies. They come in 3 sizes or you can purchase them in a kit. These work great at cleaning in between spokes, barrels of wheels, and other hard to reach spots. If you are simply looking for a safe brush to use on the faces of your wheels, I would recommend a premium boar's hair wheel brush.
