I HATE scrubbing them by hand, takes FOREVER!


Never been impressed by Akebono, tried them before. Maybe it's just me. I use my brakes HARD a lot.
Smolck,

Car wash soap, and this brush, work for me, and I am just as OCD about my wheels as you. It takes me about 2 minutes per wheel, and the brush is VERY soft, and will not damage the finish.
