I've been testing this versus using the higher-end Solo Brushes like what Larry @ AMMONYC uses. As of right now I prefer the plastic handle and surround on this brush instead of wooden handle and metal surround. The bristles on this brush also tend to stay together versus other brushes flaring outward.
I really don't like having a bunch of brushes in my bucket. I find that having a bunch of different sizes clutters it up. I think this is a really good sized brush for cleaning the wheels.
I use this for lugs, valve stems, calipers, emblems, and at times in the door/trunk jambs.
