A good design needs an improvement now and then.
May 1, 2020
I've used this tool for a number of years now but I was pleased to see that the foam design has been improved. Instead of the ribbed design that's been used for so long, it's now fuller and has a solid round design for more contact with the lug nut area.
ProsReaches into the whole lug nut area in the wheel. Effectively cleans the lug nut itself. Flexible but firm foam for maximum cleaning.
ConsCan be a bit challenging when working with larger diameter anti-theft nuts. The foam can get caught in between the nut and wheel and get pulled off the tool.

Just what's needed
It Works for Me
October 15, 2017
I read a lot of reviews and this seems to be a much maligned product. I was always interested so I decided to part with $11.99 and made the purchase. I actually like this product. It gets into the counterbore of the lugs and surrounds the lugnuts. It is a lot better than trying to shove a rag into the counterbore. I like it.
ProsCompetitive price Ease of Use Ergonomically Friendly
ConsNot available in Patriots Blue
Waste of Money

The foam heads shrink/deform once wet leaving the ends of the plastic T-handle exposed to potentially scratch the lugs. Also, if you have longer lugs (i have a QX56 with 22" rims) I could hear the plastic on the side/font of the lugs as I rotated the handle. The foam pads are also not easy to interchange/install. I resorted to using the foam pads without the T-handle which is, at best, a 50% solution. I'm going to try the foam finger pads instead. Great concept but poor execution.

Just what i needed
September 16, 2011
Ive been looking for a way to clean my lugnuts without busting my fingertips everytime i wash my wheels. This tool makes it so easy to get in the tight areas. Ill be getting more replacement foam for my brush and enjoy it for many washes to come.

After a few uses the soft foam compresses and the hard plastic presses against the recessed part of the wheel. I had to shorten each hard plastic "spoke" of the cleaner about one quarter inch. Now it works fine on all three of my vehicles.

The foam cleaning head ripped apart on FIRST use. I bought extra heads when I purchased, but have never used them. Honestly this product is junk.

The foam bunches up after about 3 lugs. Looks like it costs about 25 cents to make and thats about what it's worth.

Doesn't Last; Others better
January 16, 2010
I bought it for my Mercedes and it was good for one time. The foam is not made to last. It's cheap but requires buying more foam heads. I found a product elsewhere called Brushnut that doesn't scratch, lasts and fits any car. I think that's a better product than this gimmick.
Lug Nut Brush Does Not Last

The brush works great but you will not get much life out of the two included Foam Brush Heads. I was able to source these about two years ago through a close out and have used them on over 100 vehicles. Typical live on the foam heads about a dozen wheels and you will see rips in the foam head. It will then becomeworthless shortly there after because the foam head will begin to slip off the "fingers" on the end of the brush. Don't get me wrong I love this tool it just the foam cartridge is not very robust ! Is it worth $10 - NO
