These arent the greatest quality, and i have been over enthusiastic with them and actually bent them before. You can also over tighten/torque your lug nuts/bolts with these due to the xtra leaverage when fully extended. But if used with common sense they are quite good and better than struggling or under tightening with the short one that came with the car. The socket comes in useful for things aswell, so all in all good deal.
If you have an impact driver sitting in the toolbox, why not put it in the car instead.

these are very good and you should have no problems regarding bending them unless your car has been to a garage and they have gone mad with there air guns.if you have to jump on them to undo your wheel nuts then they have been over tightened

if you have got that tool already then yes,but most people dont,and if you mean a battery impact driver what you gonna do charge the battery every other week or just forget about it and when you need to use it battery is a bit flat

Fine but never gonna be great quality at this price ..... Think about it.

Agreed, but most people that have it don't leave in the car.
You can't over torque with them as they bend or break. Been posted before and I make the same comments again of save your money and for a few more quid, buy a breaker bar instead.

its designed for removing wheel studs not building the next space ship to mars

Makes no sense , buy a breaker bar or a torque wrench.

that just shows your tightening the studs too much if your gonna bend it,tighten studs then just lightly put your foot on it and push down should be enough,or just buy a torque wrench and be certain
These are great, totally recommend them. So much better than the drool that comes with the cars.

this sounds like someone other than fred flintstone that actually knows how they should be used correctly

Helped out a couple of stranded ladies last weekend with mine. The one that came with the car was totally mangled.
The design of these are fundamentally flawed. The design should not be angled and should be at 90 degrees. If wheel nuts are tight then the socket has a tendency to slip off the nut. Better off having a deep socket and half inch extension bar. Anyone who has experienced having to jump on one of these following a recent visit to a tyre house who's fitter tightens wheel nuts with a windy gun will know what I mean. One of these was so tight on my son's astra it split my socket (decent set).

if thats the case then what you are saying is basically most production cars have got a flaw regarding the wheel wrench they supply with the car,because in this case these are far better.if this was to get you out of trouble just once then well worth it

Yes. They make them like that to move the end of the bar away from the car wheel arch to avoid any possible damage. Not a problem for the front wheels but because of the angle of the brace it is impossible to exert the same force on each corner of the wheel nut and if the nut is tight then it can slip off. It's basic engineering the same as 6 sided sockets are better than multi point sockets because they apply the same force on each side of the nut. Another tip though is use the one that comes with the car, hold it central to the nut and give it a sharp tap with a mallet. Don't get me wrong I have one of these but occasionally where this won't shift it I resort finishing a proper deep socket and a breaker bar.
Cheaper at your local Wilko but only comes with dual sockets of 17mm & 19mm.

One of the nuts on my wheel was impossible to get off with the car supplied wrench. I had to get to Quick-fit to get it loosened. I now have a breaker bar and torque wrench and lesson learned.

Wilko do thids one for 17 & 19 inch. Works a treat but you get what you pay for.

No, just no. Why would you ever stand on it to tighten it up?! If you don’t know what you’re doing (which you clearly don’t) then just pay a man to work on your car. Wheel nuts are typically torqued to a maximum of about 100Nm ie not very much and easily achievable without getting your foot anywhere near it!

These won’t bend or break until way beyond the specified tightening torque of a wheel nut. I agree a breaker bar is more solid and these aren’t the best quality but these are more than good enough for loosening and tightening wheel nuts to the correct torque
