    wheel nut remover bar

    the standard removal bar that comes in the GM kit always struggles to get off my locking wheel nuts, (the extra locking part keeps slipping out of place) now when the garage gets them off they have a similar thing but the head rotates and its really long so you can get good leverage on it...

    anyway the garage said you can get em for a fiver? so any ideas where to get em from?

    half inch drive, that will do the job. If you are taking nuts off day in, day out go for a decent one. if it's just for yourself occasionally then this will do the job

    Just get a wheel brace..... And also make sure that you don't tighten your locking wheel nuts up too tight. I only do them up by hand to a orque much less then the standard wheel nuts.

    Have had two instances where a garage has over tightened locking wheel nut and the have either damaged the locker nut or not been able to get them off.
