Anyone use this yet and how good does it work. Looks nice but want to know if it actually works before I buy.

I imagine it works pretty good at first but once it gets dirty it probably wont work so well. I was going to get one but when I found out it was $23 I decided it was probably better not to get it.

Yeah I won't waste like 25 dollars on something that cleans my wheels. I can do that myself no problem. Unless you have polished wheels I could see were something like this would come in handy then, polishing is a very tedious thing to do. But for powdercoated or painted and such I wouldn't get it.

It was good for polishing my chrome wheels. I used Mother's chrome polish and the powerball... worked pretty good. But... for the price, it's just not worth it.

They actually just came out with a smaller one, it's got tons of uses that the larger one would have done just with a little more complication, like detailing diamondplate, etc... just still not worth it imo.
