Lug Bolt Guide Tools, also called Wheel Hangers, simplify the installation and removal of wheels on European cars with lug bolts. Anyone who has ever struggled to mount a spare tire on the side of the road will appreciate this tool. Aligning the holes in the wheel with the threaded holes in the wheel hub while inserting the first lug bolt is particularly difficult. Lug Bolt Guide Tools are also useful for aligning wheel spacers or routine brake maintenance. Keep a lug bolt guide tool in your glove compartment or tool box. This tool is a great gift idea, too!
The stainless steel professional series tools are heavy duty tools which can stand up to the rigors of daily use. The added strength of the stainless steel tool is especially useful for lug-centered aftermarket wheels where the full weight of the wheel and tire are supported by the lug bolt guide tool until the lug bolts are installed. Our newest stainless steel tools made in the USA feature a hex tip.
Female threaded stainless steel lug bolt guide tools help to minimize the risk of damaging calipers, ceramic rotors, and the wheel barrel when mounting wheels. The tools are available in M12x1.5, M12x1.25, 1/2-20, and M14x1.5 thread sizes.
