Difficulty Level:Simple installation for anyone
I'd bought a set of aftermarket wheels that needed those tiny aftermarket nuts. I can't use them since I have the ARP wheel studs. The only tool I had was a spark plug tool- that says on the side to use ... only for spark plugs. I'd tried everything from Craftsman to HarborFreight and this was the only thin walled socket that worked. I got 2.

This wheel socket makes wheel changes much easier when you have limited space. Thin wall design is strong yet minamizes wheel surface contact. A must have for all mustang owners who want to keep rims looking great.

Must needed tool when removing aftermarket lugs. Works great

perfect for my winter wheels
couldn't find anything that would fit my winter wheels nearly as well at lowes/depot or sears. i really like how it fits perfectly onto my stock lug wrench so i don't have to carry around a breaker bar... in fact, i store it on the lug wrench with the donut so it's there in case of emergency without taking up any room or clanging around in the trunk.

Worked as Advertised
For the tighter rims, this is a definite must buy. Couldn't get my 2010 GT-500 style rims off with a standard sized 13/16" and all the auto stores didn't carry them. If your looking at getting aftermarket wheels for your Mustang, definitely add this to you cart as well, you won't regret it!

Much needed piece for rims
I got these with my rims and lug nuts. This socket really makes installing the lugs easier and gives a smaller chance of hitting your rim and damaging the finish. If you have a nice set of rims. I recommend getting this

Great product overall
Purchased this as I wanted a dedicated socket for my lug nuts on track days. I must have overlooked the description as I was hoping for a 1/2 drive, this has a 3/8 inch which i will just use with an adapter on my impact gun.

Thin wall socket
Works great with thin walled rims. Carry with you a must. Any service needed in tires. This socket needed to avoid any damage to rims.

Product works fine. Nice having the male hex on the end so I can still use my 1/2" torque wrench and 1/2" drive sockets on the back, as the thin walled socket is 3/8" drive. Care must be taken when using as the stamping on the sides raised material up outside the OD of the washer, so the area where the symbols are stamped can scratch and/or remove paint from the wheels while installing/uninstalling lug nuts.

An Essential tool for you tool kit, I keep mine in the glove box just in case
This socket is very high quality and works like a charm. The lugnuts are tight in the socket so no chance of rounding one off or cross threading. Thin wall design makes this design great for putting in your glove box for emergency use or in the tool box for maintenace chores. Great service from American Muscle as always.

Great for Afrtermarket Rims!!!
This is a must have if you have a nice set of rims and dont want to scuff them with a standard socket and if your "jimmy-rigging" it with a spark plug socket dont waste your time this part is cheap, durable, and designed for this job. $9 could no WILL save your nice and possibly expensive rims!!!!! Well worth it.

Definitely a must have
I have been looking everywhere for one of these sockets, especially since I put on my new rims. It should come standard with any aftermarket wheels. You will never have to worry about scratching the wheel around the lugs, and it makes it possible to use the stock tire iron. It's definitely worth buying as it is extremely well priced.

I figured that I need one of these. The socket fits well on the lug nuts on the wheels. I did not shop around but I probably could have found one cheaper someplace else.

Good price, does it's job
A must if buying wheels that have smaller lug openings. I got away with using a regular 13/16" for awhile, but had to be very careful. This one has an opening for an extension to attach to as well!

Good product everything worked as it should. It didn't scratch my lug nuts all up.

This socket works perfect for my Saleen replica style wheels. No scratching and the pieces has multiple fittings on the end and durable metal so u won't strip the pattern.

A very versatile socket
I like the idea of a concentric shoulder which allows you to use either a deep 3/4" or 13/16" socket to mate to this socket if the need arises. The 3/8" drive matches my speed wrench to unwrap lug nuts in a speedy fashion. The quality is excellent and the price is right.

Absolutely a must-have for aftermarket wheels. I purchased the black GT500 style wheels, and after reading the reviews that mention the deep and narrow lug nut holes, I purchased this to keep from scarring up the wheels. Works perfectly. Every time I take the car to the dealership to have any work done on the wheels/brakes etc. I bring this and ask them to use it.

This product is ideal to keep your rims damage free.....
If you have a nice set of rims, this product is well worth it. I have 20" Toxic(brand) rims on my 2006 Mustang GT, and not only is it great to use on your own DIY projects that involves removing your wheels but it also comes in handy to keep in your car's trunk as I have encountered a few business's who did not have the thin wall socket on hand, and fortunately for me I have the necessary tool for the job to keep my my rims free from being scratched or damaged by hydraulic lug nut removal.

Makes the summer/winter tire swap a couple minutes faster. Looks and feels very well made.
