What wheel brush do you use?

New to the M5 world. I'm finding that my wheel woolies don't work the greatest with how big the brakes are. What do you guys use that you are able to get between the barrel of the wheel and the caliper?

I'm sure I've knocked the brush against the wheels more than once, but never seen a scratch. It does a good job on the barrels.

And it fits between the calipers and the barrel?

Yes. It's tighter either in front or back, can't remember which. I have the stock 20" wheels.

I have no problem using my trusty old long handled wash up brush to get in that tight space and it doesn't scratch.

I picked up a large EZ Detail brush and it does a pretty good job.

Never a brush, always extra rinse and a microfiber towel by hand. HREs are expensive ��

I get the point but doing the barrels justice has to be absolutely awful that way.
