How on earth does one go about "attempting" to clean and shine the lug nut wells on the factory wheels. In short of taking them off, which seems a "little extreme" for a simple wash and dry, I am stumped?

Depends on the amount of "anal retentiveness" you possess

A buddy of mine removes individual lug nuts and uses a trimmed toothbrush. But he has a bit of an obsessive compulsive disorder. Lol

I only really clean mine for shows... I stole a bottle brush from the kitchen for quick work... It's a soft kind not the bristle kind. Works pretty good.

Thanks everyone! Good ideas.

Glad no-one mentioned a Q-Tip & the spare 4 hour method.

What I do is take a terry cloth and using the edge I swirl and turn the cloth inside the well. Comes out great.
