lock nut remover from princess auto. and a big fukin hammer. they have reverse threads so you pound it on. and as you turn to remove your lock nuts, its bites and voila. did 6 of these on a rusty 76 cj. worked good.

You can get spiral impact sockets form Snap-on or crapsman or Cambodia Tire.

They would probably be the best.


Air chisel works gooder too.

The reverse thread ones from PA work best IMO and I have to go through this almost weekly but be forewarned once the reverse thread ones are on the lock nut they are a bitch to remove sometimes you will need a benchvise to do so.
If your locknuts are sleeved then you need to weld a nut to them

Canadian Tire has a loan a tool program, go see if they have a set for removing locking nuts. If not, I always used an air chisel, worked everytime. Gotta be pretty familiar with using one though otherwise you can make a mess of aluminum rims.

Take it to a local tire shop maybe the ones you got your tires from they usually have removal tools and sometimes a ton of MISC. lock nut sockets there are usually only so many set patterns depending on the brand.

Thanks guys didnt have a set of impacts and my crome ones wouldnt grip. Took it to a tire shop the took er off for me free of charge, although I did just order a set of rims for my other truck.

Their meathod was hammer on an impact and she came right off, he took em all off for me cause my key was busted there useless to me now anyways.

Id only put em on cause I had a neibor that thought it was funny to losen my lugnuts, had tires almost fall of three times, and after the first time I retourqued all my lugnuts so know it wasnt just loose lugnuts.
