Tunnel washes must do a great job cleaning the wheels and rims of cars, trucks and SUVs — particularly ‘decked out’ ones — to keep customers coming back. But too often, standard-length wheel brushes simply scrub flat surfaces and ‘ride over’ interior detail, leaving tightly adhered dirt and road grime intact. So, the industry has developed innovative automated wheel brushes with varied configurations of size and shape. With a unique name like the ‘Wheel Wonder,’ this brush is characterized by filaments that are gradually varied in length between four and six inches to create a wave-like pattern. As vehicles travel through the automated car wash, the longer filaments reach deep into wheel crevices while the shorter filaments clean the surface. Such wheel brushes can survive many thousands of vehicles with very little maintenance due to the special core that prevents bending or denting.
