Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! This week, we’re going to investigate one of the parts you can’t really see – deep beyond the tire and inside the barrel of your rims. 

You may wonder why we’d bother? Out of sight, out of mind, right? But there are plenty of reasons to make sure your barrels are clean. First, rust spreads. If you let contaminants build up, you’ll run into trouble eventually. There’s also the chance that stuff will get clogged up in there and then damage your tire, or even pop out and nick your rim. Then, there’s the way it looks. You’re going to make sure your wheels and rims are clean, but if you have something rusty and dirty lurking behind, people will notice. Fear not, though. It’s not as tough as you might think to get back there and make things super clean. As always, it’s about your kit and at Proje’ we have the best barrel brush out there.

Our Barrel Brush

The Barrel Brush is a big plush brush with one main use in mind, to clean the inner barrel of your rim. With is synthetic fibers and long handle it makes cleaning the hard to reach parts of your rim really easy. Simply slide the barrel brush between the spokes of your rim to clean the barrels of any rim; painted, chrome, aluminum etc. Paired with the Redline Wheel Cleaner, this is a combo that you cannot live without. Our Redline Wheel Cleaner is the best wheel cleaner around, so it’s a great product pairing.

The inner barrels are the deepest parts of your wheels that you will need to reach for cleaning purposes. This isn’t purely about depth though; a thin but long brush will get inside the barrel with no problem, but then won’t cover the surface area you need to get a really thorough clean. You need a brush that’s large, long and wide, and our barrel brush is all of those in one! Its bristles are flexible and soft enough that you can push them between your spokes without any danger of scratching, but sturdy enough that they dislodge all the build up of oil, dirt and brake dust that sits deep within your barrels.

A clean barrel will provide a superb, pristine background that will really bring out the cleanliness of your wheels and rims.Our barrel brush also has a plug handle, which is designed to protect your hand and knuckles when you’re digging deep. Hold the brush near the protective guard and you’ll be assured safety as you work the brush in and out of the barrel. We don’t just think about cleaning at Proje’ – it isn’t enjoyable if you get hurt, so all our products prioritize customer safety just as much as brilliant results!

What about the rest of my wheel?

Well, we’ve already mentioned our Redline Wheel Cleaner, but you might also want to check out Decon – another great pH neutral product which focuses specifically on breaking down iron build-up from brake dust. It works on both visible and invisible deposit build-ups, letting you know when it’s finished working by changing color. This allows for more effective decontamination, ensuring that painted and metallic surfaces aren’t left to progressively corrode even after regular detailing services. 

Just like our Redline Wheel Cleaner turns red, Decon turns purple, so you’ve got a ready-made, color-coded way to tell that you’re getting the job done. Check out the product pages for more details. In the meantime, you can get hold of our Barrel Brush for just $19.99!
