I assume your talking about around the lug nuts.
Why not just jack the car up and take one wheel off at a time and clean the inside of the wheel as well.
No need to use Q-tips then.

Next time she puts on make up.. watch her.. if she uses lip liner and eye liner along with her eyeshadow and lipstick, ask her "Isn't that a little obsessive?!?" :nana

A lot of people think I'm obsessed b/c I wash my car sooo much. They tell me I'd probably band my tailpipe if I could. So I just tell them, "If you had a BMW, you would do the same thing" Us BMW owners take a lot of pride in our cars and they look soooo much better when they are all cleaned and polished up. You are not wierd man, if you are, them I am too!
