I use a quick detailer also.

My question is what kind of a brush is everyone using to clean the tight areas in the wheel lugs?

Meguires Final Inspection 34 spray works good for break dust removal on the clear coated wheels.

If its just a wipe down, waterless wash... if its a full blown cleaning, but the wheels aren't too heavily contaminated I use our Car Wash Shampoo... dilute a couple oz's in a sprayer with water, use a foaming spray head and clean the wheels with that.
