Polishing made easy with automated brush

ST. CONSTANT, Que. – Polishing your wheels could get a whole lot easier, with the introduction of a new automated brush by D.P. Brushes.

The brush attaches to the wheel using brackets permanently fixed at each end of the axle tree or oil cap.

After a 30 to 50 km drive, at 90 km per hour, the wheel should be completely polished.(A thin layer of dry cream metal polish, such as Autosol, should be applied to the rims and allowed to dry before the brush is used.)

The brush makes the wheel-cleaning process much more efficient, says Carole Jutras, of D.P. Brushes.

“It makes it a lot easier to polish the wheels, as opposed to doing it manually, which takes a long time, or using a buffer, which can be very expensive,” Jutras says.

Best results are achieved when the rim is dry and the wheels are warm, she adds.

The brush comes in two sizes, for front and trailer wheels. The back wheel set, including four brackets and one brush, costs about $290.

The front wheel brush set costs about $190 and includes two permanent brackets and one brush.

Additional brackets are available. For more information, visit www.lesbrossesdp.com
