I'm comfortable keeping my clean and Zainoed thanks to your instructions but have one question. Have you or anyone else found a good technique or tool that makes it easy to clean the inside of the rim (deep between the spokes and round the rotor) easily? On my 162's I can get a rag in there and if I lay my hand flat I can get it pretty clean, but it takes a LONG time and usually cuts my hand up; not to mention I have to end up moving the car half way through to get the areas behind the caliper that I can't reach the first time around. Has anyone got an easier way to do this without jacking the car up and taking the rims off?
Cleaning behind the wheels is usually very hard unless you remove the rim from the car. Some tools that may possibly help (though I have not used them) are something like this: (as a side note, tools similar to this can be purchased locally at autozone, target, etc, so check there first b4 buying online)
