If it's what I think it is. You make it! Get a stiff nylon brush and plastic tub or plastic shoe box and some shoe goop at your local Target, Kmart, Walmart, etc. Glue the brush with the shoe box, let the goop dry probably overnight and you're done. If you want to make it look like it came from a manufacturer, add stickers of your choice.

I usually see plastic tubs with lids at like Wal-Mart and stores like that. Look in the dishware dept. or hardware. They are just small rubber maid/tuperware type tubs. Then find a nylon hand held scrub brush and shoe goo/glue the brush to the inside bottom of the tub. Walah! Tire cleaner.

Yea a fellow racer at my track has one, I have used it before. Too small for my taste.

I know it has a brush within it, No room to "brush" the tire back and forth.

I have one or should I say had one.
It is to small, does not seal, the black paint flakes off everwhere, cracks if you accidently drop it and, did I say it was to small
LIR's tub is much bigger,brush is epoxied and is tuperware need I say any more
